"I believe it’s important to understand what each client wants from their interactions with me, so I offer a level of attentiveness that allows me to interpret their requirements to hopefully deliver beyond their expectations."

Nothing is too much trouble when taking care of my clients and I want them to know that they can approach me with any queries that arise, no matter how big or small. I believe it’s important to understand what each client wants from their interactions with me, so I offer a level of attentiveness that allows me to interpret their requirements to hopefully deliver beyond their expectations.

I specialise in carrying out audits for companies of all sizes, with particular expertise in the property sector as well as other professional service entities. I am always transparent with clients, so if there’s a problem I will maintain honest and open communication whilst also making sure that the issue is quickly resolved.

If you’re interested…
After completing my degree in Mathematics at the University of Exeter, I qualified as a Chartered Certified Accountant in 2005 whilst working for a top 10 firm. I joined Gerald Edelman in 2017 and now work alongside numerous partners to carry out work for a wide array of the firm’s clients.

What is the most daring thing you’ve ever done?
I once abseiled down a 100 foot bridge. At the time, I tried to find every excuse not to go through with it, but eventually braved the challenge and lived to tell the tale!

If you could have dinner with anyone who would it be?
Stephen Fry – I would like my dinner guest to be interesting and amusing and he is someone who’s the best of both!

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Power mimicry – I could copy another person’s skills without all the hard work of learning it myself. It’s the ultimate superpower.

Who inspires you?
I take my inspiration from the great people I meet on my way through life.
