I am the lead Partner for BDO’s office in Guildford. I also head up our 200+ strong audit group for BDO South East. I have several years’ experience of advising UK businesses and international groups within the technology, hospitality, care and corporate education sectors. I enjoy working with entrepreneurial businesses, seeing them grow and helping them through each stage of their lifecycle. 

My technology clients are typically high growth, Private Equity backed or listed software companies across a broad landscape, including Fintech, Createch and Greentech. 

Prior to training as a chartered accountant, I worked in publishing (both printed media, and on-line), and owned and operated a cafe. As such, I have a balanced perspective of the world of business and am well placed to advise my clients. 

Outside of work you will mostly find me, running, cycling, or supporting my children’s various sporting interests. I am passionate about education and have been an Audit Committee member of the Open University since 2014, as well as spending time on the Boards of Godalming College and Busbridge Infants School. I also run BDO Velo’s virtual rides on Zwift.
