I was admitted to the bar in New Zealand in 1991, and the New York bar in 1996 where I resided for nearly 11 years after working for a year in Japan.  In 1999 I set up the New York branch of creative agency Cross World Connections, and have continued to provide legal services including negotiating and drafting licensing contracts for them since returning to New Zealand, as well as assisting several New Zealand artists and brands negotiate and draft copyright licensing agreements.  

As an immigrant in New York, I was regularly approached by people I knew looking for help with their immigration issues, and before long it was not just friends, but friends of friends, and friends of friends of friends etc..  Hence my US immigration law practice began, and developed alongside my copyright licensing practice , several times for the same clients.  I have continued to practice US immigration law from New Zealand, and maintain my license to practice law in New York as well as my membership to the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
