I'm the Chief Financial Officer of a privately owned software company based in New Zealand, and with offices in Seattle, Singapore and very shortly Manila. I'm an avid traveller, and many of my posts will be about people and places. Whilst I'm a financial economist, I'm also a cartoonist and I publish in Fishhead Magazine with the Mr Reasonable Cartoon series. I'm very involved in the NGO sector and I'm the Chairman of the National Board of the Child Cancer Foundation, a charity devoted to supporting children with cancer and their families. I also sit on the National Board of CanTeen, a charity that works with teenagers dealing with cancer.
