I have been at Nexia Sydney for over 14 years during which he has developed expertise in Superannuation (in particular SMSFs), across both accounting and financial planning facets, enabling me to provide a unique and holistic service offering to clients.
I graduated UNSW with a Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting & Finance Majors), and have since completed several post graduate qualifications to become a Chartered Accountant SMSF Specialist and a Certified Financial Planner. This has enabled me to develop from a superannuation accountant assisting clients with their tax compliance needs, to also becoming their trusted financial advisor providing holistic advice including structuring/tax minimisation, retirement planning, investment, risk management and estate planning strategies.
It is important to strike a happy balance between enjoying life now and building towards a comfortable retirement, which is where I believe I add value to my clients by keeping them up to date with changes to legislation and on track to achieve their goals by providing them with advice through their various life stages towards retirement and beyond.
Outside of work, I am passionate about travelling and exploring other cultures. While I was born in Sydney and completed my HSC at James Ruse Agricultural High School, I also lived and studied in India for a few years, which have all contributed to my appreciation for diverse range of values and perspectives. I have previously taken part in a Corporate Fighter charity night, which allowed me to explore my competitive side while contributing to a great cause. Other than boxing, I love for soccer, having played for many local clubs and passionately followed Manchester United over the years.
My objective is to give clients peace of mind with respect to their financial future and compliance obligations so that they can focus on all the other aspects of their lives. I am approachable and always up for a chat with clients and colleagues as I am a strong believer in building long-lasting professional relationships that are also enjoyable along the way.
