Born in the UK of Caribbean parentage (Jamaican). I’m an avid sports’ fan and former member of the British military (Royal Marines). I love the sport of boxing , though as of late I’ve become somewhat disenchanted with it , merely because of the idiocy of promoter Bob Arum. Though boxing was my passion I also love soccer , EPL , teams such as Man U and Chelsea. In the NBA it’s the Spurs . The NFL it’s the New England Patriots. MLB it’s the Florida Marlins. I traveled throughout much of Europe and lived for an 18 month span in Paris while working for an investment bank on assignment there.
Eclectic taste in music , ranging from jazz, rock, rap , reggae , African influence and Far Eastern. Love reading biographies and crime thrillers.

Specializing in the field of corporate governance as it relates to international financial laws, banking , finance, IPO’s , M & A, LBO’s (leveraged buy-outs), financial derivatives.
