What do you enjoy most about your job?

When you can see the fruits of your labour and the difference it makes to clients’ lives. We recently provided advice to a client that showed him he could retire that day and spend more time with his family. The look on his face was priceless and makes my job really worthwhile.

How do you like to spend your time outside of work?

Hiking, Swimming, Cycling, Camping, anything outdoors!

What made you decide to do the work you’re currently doing?

I studied economics at university which sparked my interest in finance.

One thing that is guaranteed to make your day better…

A cheese and bacon turnover.

What would your specialist subject be on Mastermind?

The “Sharpe” series of books by Bernard Cornwell.
