I’m James and I’m very proud to say that I’ve been an accountant and tax adviser for over 15 years.
I graduated with a BA in Mathematics & Computation at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford University, then did a MSc in Computational Statistics at the University of Bath.
I joined Coopers & Lybrand in September 1996 and won national prizes at all levels of training before qualifying in 1999.
I set up my own accountancy practice in December 2009 and it has expanded significantly since then. I provide all accountancy and taxation services and am a specialist in the owner-managed sector.
When I’m not working hard on accounts and tax returns, I like to spend time with my family. We enjoy eating out, go-karting and exotic holiday locations (usually Tenby!) where we can relax on the beach and go swimming.
My best sporting days are now behind me, but I still try to play football, snooker and darts with my son.
To chill out I like watching TV – mainly Sky Sports, Coronation Street, You’ve Been Framed! and repeats of Baywatch and the Benny Hill Show. I’m a big fan of Jessica Fletcher and have every episode of Murder She Wrote on tape.
