    I am originally from London, England. I attended Eton College before graduating from the University of Bristol with a BSc Hons in Economics and Accounting in 1995. After graduating, I joined Citibank in London as a Foreign Exchange Trader and quickly proved himself as a positive, focused and highly productive trader. I later concluded my FX career running a trading desk in New York. It was from NY that I and my young family first visited Park City and we instantly appreciated its awesome beauty, fabulous amenities, unique location and family focused fun. "I had contacted a realtor and was looking at potential properties before we had finished our first ski trip!" It took a further 4 years from when I initially bought a vacation home in Deer Valley before I was able to engineer a permanent move to Utah. Being on all the different sides of Park City home ownership, I feel that I have a rare perspective which I look forward to sharing with you. I take great pleasure from assisting my clients with their purchases and sales in the area and I look forward to being able to do the same for you. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly at any time with any questions at all.
