Biography

I trained as a Chartered Accountant whilst working in a large local accountancy firm, where over a 6 year period I was involved with all areas of accounts preparation, taxation and auditing on a wide variety of clients. The experience was invaluable and has ensured that during my classes I can offer real life examples of accounting in the real world. After accounting practice I worked for a global healthcare company as a Financial Accountant. Here I used UKGAAP, IFRS, USGAAP and other local GAAP to prepare financial statements for the healthcare group. I dealt with Taxation issues including corporation tax and VAT as well as other accounting duties. Parallel with teaching I also set up and ran a family business for a number of years, this again offering me an insight into all areas of business which I regularly discuss to put our topics into a real life context.
