About Me

I joined Glamorgan 1:1 Financial in September 2015. I enjoy building trusting relationships with clients, helping to navigate them through financial decisions and products which can often feel like a minefield.
I am a sport fanatic. I have always played football, rugby, cricket, surfed and more recently I have caught the golfing bug.
I am a member of Brackla Apostolic Church where I am heavily involved in strumming the guitar or slapping the bass in the worship band and working with the children and young people of the church and local community. Additionally, each Summer I have the privilege of running the children’s activities during the National Apostolic Church’s Annual Conference in Cheltenham.

About Me

I’m married to Joanna with two young children, Noah & Abigail.
I joined Glamorgan 1:1 Financial in 2017 as an apprentice adviser. I have since achieved Diploma Status and have been promoted to Associate Financial Adviser. I aim to help clients gain a better understanding of the opportunities available to them as we shape a financial plan for their future. I like to assist clients to make small steps towards their financial goal in the early years. It is these adjustments that have a substantial impact several years down the line.
I am a Swiss national and speak English, French, German, Spanish and some Italian. I have past experiences working in various countries such as Switzerland, Spain, Denmark, Wales as well as London, which has helped my understanding of people and cultures.
As an active participant in Brackla Tabernacle, I am passionate about bringing a positive impact in my community and to those around me.
