I am a Director in the Industrials and Chemicals team in London. I joined Clearwater International in 2021 from Gleacher Shacklock, where I advised on a number of high profile and complex transactions in the industrials, infrastructure and natural resources sectors.

I have 14 years’ experience in public and private transactions and have previously worked at Lehman Brothers, Citigroup and Credit Suisse. I also spent 2 years working for the UK Government advising Government Ministers on portfolio management and strategic exits/investments during the global financial crisis.

I am passionate about corporate finance and enjoy working with ambitious people and businesses to deliver the most successful outcomes for our clients.

I graduated with a law degree from the University of Edinburgh and enjoy playing golf, running and cycling.
