What do you enjoy most about your role?

The challenge the next call or email brings. It could be a Guernsey tax question or someone looking to relocate to the Island who needs combined UK and Guernsey tax advice.

How did you begin your career in tax?

My first job on leaving Elizabeth College was in my father’s vinery. The overriding memory is of having a ladder and bucket of grease and climbing up to each vent to ensure the mechanisms were working in mid-summer. The opportunity to work in an accountant’s office came my way and was not to be missed. I then commenced my career as a tax junior at Reads & Co in 1984.

Something about you that not many people know!

I am a qualified PADI Divemaster.

What is your favourite Guernsey Beach?

Petit Port, despite the steps.

What was fun to do once, but you'll never do again?

Sitting in the "shed end" at Stamford Bridge as a West Ham fan and celebrating Paulo di Canio's goal.

What is your favourite restaurant in Guernsey?

I have 3!! Saltwater at Beaucette.  Mora in town and the Rock Garden at Fermain.

The best thing about island living?

The work life balance and at present our complete freedom despite the global Covid19 pandemic
