Since graduating from university I have worked in all areas of financial advice including pension, investment and inheritance tax planning. I made the decision to specialise in providing impartial mortgage advice in 2006 and have never looked back.
I relish the challenges that arranging property finance presents and enjoy building relationships with my clients, lenders and providers. I offer advice in all areas of property finance but specialise in residential and buy to let mortgages for clients based in the UK or abroad. I am also a qualified equity release specialist and have significant experience in this niche area.
Outside of work I am a father of twin girls and an aspiring ultramarathon runner, both of these require patience, persistence and dedication. These are also traits that are very useful in the mortgage market.
Born in Rhodesia and educated in South Africa I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Dental Technology. After many years as a "Tooth Fairy" working in both SA and the UK I decided it was time to follow my passion for property.
I moved into the mortgage industry and through sheer hard work and determination I quickly built up a strong network of high net worth clients.
I have helped a wide variety of borrowers to obtain residential mortgages, from first-time buyers to bankers. I also specialise in arranging buy-to-let mortgages for landlords looking to maximise profits from their property portfolios.
After finishing university I joined a leading mortgage lender and worked in their current account mortgage department. This gave me a real insight into the way banks operate and I developed a strong knowledge of finance and customer service.
Two-years later I was asked to move to a large mortgage brokers in St James's, London. I started in their compliance department and soon took over as the product manager - reporting directly to the managing director.
Just over six years ago I joined Trinity Financial. I work with banks and building societies, journalists, clients and I enjoy keeping up with the latest mortgage news.

I have been a mortgage broker for 17 years and over this period I have encountered some of the most complex cases.
Previously, I was a senior account manager at Chase De Vere Mortgage Management for ten years before helping to set up Trinity Financial in a very challenging market and have looked on as the company has gone from strength to strength with an amazing team of mortgage brokers.
My experience and industry contacts has helped me secure finance for a large variety of residential mortgage applications, from first time buyers to high net worth clients. I have huge experience arranging residential investments and portfolio restructuring. I also work with a large number of offshore clients purchasing in the UK either through individual names, or through more complex trust or company structures.
I've overseen multi-million development projects in central London and the south east, and have excellent contacts throughout the industry to offer competitive terms. I can help you to secure finance on anything from Scottish castles through to large mixed used developments of over 600 units.
Outside of the mortgage world, I have three young children who keep me active while my golf clubs gather dust
