I am a corporate partner who loves innovative thinking, solving problems and helping our brightest entrepreneurs rise to the very top and achieve their dreams. My goal is to add value each time I interact with a client's business.

I grew up in Sydney by the beach in Manly. I started my legal career late, after having already completing a science degree in the medical space and working in hospital emergency departments for six years. I have now practiced law in Australia and as an expatriate in Dubai.

Now based in Brisbane as a Partner in our corporate transactions practice, I have represented early stage startups, formed new companies and advised on the early-stage corporate challenges that many startups face, represented companies and investors in venture financing rounds, advised large corporates on their innovation and corporate venture capital strategies, and worked with sellers and buyers in the sale and acquisition of mature businesses.

Outside of work, I am a mad keen surfer and have surfed many of the world's most exotic and famous locations (including Indonesia, Hawaii, Europe, Fiji, Samoa and Central America). I love playing with my kids and watching them grow and sharing great food and laughter with my family and friends.
