My passions are tax and teaching. I love reading and understanding treaties, laws and directives; seeing how they are shaped in case law and then explaining all that in clear, simple terms with references to real life practical examples. I enjoy interacting with people, raising questions and getting them to connect the dots so that ultimately they feel comfortable with the material and their skills.

I teach transfer pricing and international corporate taxation in a variety of formats: online automated, online face to face, and –when life returns to normal after COVID - in person. My typical audiences are: governments, universities, tax professionals with continued education requirements, professional service providers and post graduate students following the Chartered Institute of Taxation’s exams for an Advanced Diploma in International Taxation (#CIOT and #ADIT).

In my teaching I bring to the table my 20+ years experience in international tax and transfer pricing from working in Amsterdam, London, New York and Copenhagen; working for large law firms, accounting firms, the Danish government and various multinationals. I also published books and numerous articles on taxation, and am currently the editor of PE Plus, an international database on the taxation of permanent establishments.
