My two skills of accounting and creativity combine to form not only the person I am, but the agency I founded. We help accountants discover their creativity, and we help them show that off through great branding, websites, and marketing materials. I originally qualified as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in the States, and moved to Scotland in 2001. I started out working for an accounting firm in Scotland, then in a network of accountants delivering consulting and marketing support. And then I realised the accountants didn’t need yet another person telling them WHAT to do, but needed an agency who uniquely understood accountants and marketing both, and could get this marketing work actually done by a team who knows what they’re doing.
I’m a dual British-American citizen and I live and work from Scotland (the most beautiful country in the world). I have spoken in person and online for organisations such as Xero, The Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW), BKR International, AccountingWeb, and Accountex, although lately I mostly enjoy writing and training and coaching small groups of accountants.
I’m fuelled by daily walks in the Scottish countryside, my faith and love for God, and copious amounts of strong black coffee. Not necessarily in that order.
