Me in a minute
I am very involved personally as well as professionally with the challenges of cross border US/UK tax
Having lived happily on both sides of the Atlantic, being married to an American with one kid in the US and one in London, I am very involved personally as well as professionally with the challenges of cross border US/UK tax. I enjoy the challenge of making these sometimes intricate and frustrating rules come together to let clients achieve their goals.
Perhaps foolishly I took on the challenge of co-writing the new Bloomsbury book on US/UK Wealth Planning which has been rewarding in terms of working closely with colleagues on a broad range of tax issues.
Cross border philanthropy has been a particular interest because it combines a personal enthusiasm for the work of the charity sector with the challenge of sometimes pointlessly restrictive tax rules. Outside the office I enjoy music and playing the cello badly.
