About me
Legal & Compliance recruitment across EMEA. I have extensive multi-jurisdictional experience having lived and worked in the UK, Ireland, Spain and the United Arab Emirates. I partner with established multinationals and smaller, private equity backed businesses on anything from first time regional hires to confidential replacements and team build outs. 

Outside of work, I enjoy dabbling in Arabic lessons, fine dining and performing in an amateur dramatic society.
