“I believe if we stop being curious, we cease to be inventive and then we all stop moving forward”
Growing up I developed a huge curiosity around technology and engineering, especially as nearly all my relatives were engineers of one kind or another. I decided to specialise in economics and finance as a career – but inevitably my working life has been spent helping scientists and engineers utilise money and resources in the best way possible. As natural problem solvers this has been just fine with me. Through Universities, BAe Systems, Jaguar Landrover (JLR) and various consultancies I have made my way to TBAT.
I consider myself very lucky to work every day with such talented, able and considerate people at TBAT. As a dynamic company I feel that we develop individual solutions to clients and really strive to provide them with as much assistance in achieving their aims as we can.
At TBAT I get involved in most aspects of the work the company undertakes and have undertaken many SMART applications and CRDs however most of my day to day work involves writing Research and Development Tax Credit reports (RDTC). I find understanding the work performed by companies in coming up with innovative solutions and inventions fascinating and am always amazed by the level of ingenuity displayed to get to solutions. It frequently gives me a sense of satisfaction that we are able to provide assistance in allowing innovative companies to continue the work that they perform.
My two little boys occupy most of my time when I am not at work. In the office people know that there is little point in asking me about TV unless it involves children’s programmes – in which case I am an expert. I enjoy studying military history and war gaming – and am slowly indoctrinating Ethan and Jayson (my boys) much to my wife’s obvious delight. When I get the chance I enjoy hillwalking although even the peak district still doesn’t seem as hilly as most of my native Scotland.
