“I’ve always been drawn to people and businesses who can turn new and imaginative ideas into reality. As a lawyer, I have a unique and exciting role to play, not just to observe this fascinating process from the outside, but to be fully engaged in it, and to do my best to meaningfully contribute to it. This drives me personally and directs this business.”
“I’m inspired by the convergence of technology and creativity - how technology is being used to create engaging commercial communications. Each day new ideas are emerging, and as a firm we are constantly evolving and updating to provide enabling capabilities for our clients. I find it exciting to be a critical part of a client’s journey, providing them with solutions so they can realise their vision. Oddly enough, outside work I’m passionate about all things vintage. So at work I’m living in the 22nd century, at home the 19th century!”
