My father was in the Army until I was 10 which gave me the opportunity early on to discover parts of the world unknown to most until much later in life.  Maybe it was that early influence that caused my eternal case of wanderlust that has taken me around the world - twice.


I often dub myself, "A businessman who knows the law and a lawyer who knows business."  I have split my professional career almost evenly between being a business executive & consultant and being a corporate and commercial lawyer.

I have 3 daughters and 2 amazing son-in-laws and enjoying spending as much of my spare time as possible with them.
