“What fascinates me about tax law is the multidimensional nature of the issues it involves – law, business administration, and negotiating and communication skills are all equally important. As a counterbalance to this rather abstract work, I like to stimulate all of my other senses through cooking, photography, sports in the great outdoors, and cultural activities.”
