Exploring somewhere new with vibrant cities, beautiful countryside, lots of restaurants and a babysitter!

My family.

Working somewhere with such a buzz, a strong sense of purpose and values and which offers huge variety.

I gained very broad transactional experience at the Wellcome Trust, working on both fund and direct investments. That breadth of experience travels across well to my role at Apis, as does having worked on fund-raisings and investments with a limited partner lens which brings a different and useful perspective.
