As a Senior Associate within the Deal Origination team, I am responsible for building and developing relationships with potential clients across our TMT and Industrials & Chemicals sectors. My day-to-day activities primarily involve engaging with shareholders and senior management of exciting businesses to understand their goals and strategic aspirations.

Prior to joining Clearwater, I led the deal origination function for three and a half years at technology boutique, Knight Corporate Finance. During this time, I originated several transactions across the technology sector.

After graduating from Leeds Business School with a degree in Marketing, I lived and taught English in Inner Mongolia, China for 12 months.
