If you were a superhero who would you be and why?

“The Flash – I believe time is the most valuable thing, if I had the flash’s speed I could effectively create more of it. I could do tasks I don’t particularly enjoy extremely quickly and give myself more time to do things I want to do.”

Having been at the practice for 19 years, I have seen a lot and get the most satisfaction when advising my clients utilising the wealth of knowledge I have picked up not just in the accountancy space, but also in business.

I appreciate that business can be a lonely place for founders/owners and feels that I am at my best when I can be the trusted advisor and the ‘go to’ person for clients. I always encourage clients to pick up the phone and talk through an issue or idea as the chances are, I will have seen something similar and if I haven’t I will probably know someone who has.

I like to draw on my well established network of contacts to help clients wherever possible.

I also get a real sense of satisfaction from helping align a business owner’s personal goals to the business goals. Whether that be maximising profits or trying to create a better work life balance and dealing with the financial and tax planning alongside such goals.


I have a very keen interest in anything health, fitness and mindset related. I can often be seen walking locally with a cup of coffee in hand and a podcast on. I am always looking to develop, not only for my sake but for the sake of my two little boys. I want to be able to switch off to spend time with them and help them as much as I can through their journey in life. It’s these two little boys that keep me busy when I’m not out walking! If I do have any other free time it is normally spent in some way related to sport, typically spectating and socialising with friends.
