As a Senior Associate in our UK deal origination team, I am responsible for business development activities across our TMT and healthcare sectors and our debt advisory service. I have originated several Clearwater transactions including PSL Purchasing’s cross-border sale to Sodexo, e-days’ growth capital investment from Palatine Private Equity and FM Conway’s substantial debt raise.

I joined Clearwater International in December 2013 having graduated from Nottingham Business School with a 2:1 in Business Economics. I captain Clearwater’s Midlands Football Team, founded a Young Professional’s Network in the Nottinghamshire region, and regularly represent Clearwater in charity work.
