About Me

My first career: this was in marketing and product development, converting to a career in law after living in Switzerland for a number of years, having experienced the complexities and differences of legal systems in various jurisdictions.

Favourite hobbies: my most indulgent and expensive hobby is the enjoyment of good food and wine, ably assisted by my elder daughter who works as a sommelier in a Michelin 2 Star restaurant in London!

Skiing with friends and family and enjoying mountain air and food is a long term passion, when I am able to escape back to the beautiful Alps.
