About Me

A Business Consultant and Accountant with a Passion for Web Technology.

I’m a business consultant and accountant from the South West of Australia. I’ve been working as an income tax consultant for 16 years, and during that time have progressed to become the owner of my own firm.

I’m thrilled by the efficiency and elegance of a well designed system, whether that’s a clean code base behind a web application, or practical procedures for internal control.

I love being involved in the small to mid size businesses I consult with, and am dedicated to finding ethical, cost effective ways to enhance performance and success.
