I joined NBS in September 2011 as a lecturer in Corporate Finance having already taught as an Associate Tutor for six months. Previously I spent 20 years in investment banking and investment management for European financial institutions.  I moved from structured finance lending at Deutsche Bank to infrastructure financial advisory work with Barclays Capital into investment management with Innisfree, ING and Climate Change Capital.

I graduated from Loughborough University with a first class BA (Hons) in Business Administration with a modern language and also hold an MBA in Strategic Carbon Management with distinction from UEA.

I am a Fellow of the Institute of Directors and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
