I am an Accountant here at CapitalQ with a Bachelor of Business from Edith Cowan University with a Major in Accounting.
I am now furthering my professional studies and qualifications, firstly undertaking the Tax Institute’s Chartered Tax Adviser program PLUS I am also simultaneous taking on the Chartered Accountants Australia & New Zealand Chartered Accountants Program. No at present, I do not have a life after work!
You all know of Chartered Accountants (“CAs”), but Chartered Tax Advisers (“CTA”) while still a relatively new qualification is considered the world’s number one tax credential, and it is offered by the premier tax professional body in Australia. I look forward to ticking both those boxes soon.
I have also recently taken my first steps on to the property ladder, and have long term plans to build real wealth through property. So I expect further real estate investments are on the horizon.
I am also undertaking some personal diversification having commenced a share portfolio with my partner which we are actively managing which helps expand our knowledge and experience and hopefully helps us achieve our long term financial goals at the same time.
I’m quite a sporty person and have always involved myself in and around sport or exercise associated past times.
You can definitely call me competitive as I will almost always attempt every sport I come across.
I currently spend any spare time I have going to the gym and soon I will be getting back in to American Football (Gridiron) training and regular seasonal competition. Having recently discovered Gridiron, I am most definitely hooked. I currently play for a local Bayswater team, Perth Broncos and have in the past played in the WA State team for LGL. I do enjoy honing my tackling skills on any CapitalQ Team Member who doesn’t do as I say!
Other past times includes catching up with friends, board games, computer games, designing and woodworking, movies, and so on.
