I began my career in Research and Development (R&D) in the oil and gas sector due to my love of chemistry. However, I chose to move into the associated commercial field, which subsequently led me into mainstream management consulting. I now operate as an independent business consultant for commercial and business transformation.

I’ve maximised the opportunity for walking and peak climbing on my travels, sometimes throwing a mountain bike into the mix – I do my best thinking at the top of a mountain. I have two active teenage sons and I am heavily into cricket and rugby, which I passionately support as I once passionately rowed.
With personal experience of depression and the associated impact, I am keen to broaden the public discussion on mental health, both within the workplace and schools. I see early intervention with regards to school age children as a priority.
