  • Jamie likes to challenge the ‘boring accountant’ stereotype.  He loves adventure and among many things, he has trekked to Everest Base Camp, climbed Mt Kilimanjaro, white water rafted on the Nile and kayaked around icebergs in Antarctica.  His passions are travel (a goal to visit 100 countries in his lifetime) and keeping fit by participating in triathlons and has even completed ironman events. 

    In 2015, Jamie combined Altruism with his travel and fitness passions. He joined the Heart Foundation Team to run the New York Marathon, raising over $9,400 for this fantastic charity, and achieving his goal of running the marathon in under 4 hours.
