John has always had a keen interest in business, sport and travel. In 1992, at the age of 25, John left his position as a tax manager with Deloitte to start his own venture focused on international business and tax, now known as CST Tax Advisors.
In 2004 he established CST’s first overseas office in Singapore, and since that time CST Tax Advisors has spread to many global locations. The company remains focused on global expatriates and businesses moving across borders.
John recognised that all his clients living away from home actually resided in a unique country called ‘Expatland’ and they needed help on a range of issues.
John’s passion is to make expat’s lives easier at home and abroad. Expatland the book was the first step in doing this and it has been widely cited as a landmark book in planning for a move overseas.
Since John’s first book was published, Expatland continues to broaden its range of activities and now helps expats in cities around the world.
A regular speaker, John travels widely, presenting numerous technical and business papers to organisations such as the Immigration Industry Association, American Australian Association, AustCham Singapore and Australia United Kingdom Chamber of Commerce to name a few. He has worked with clients in more than 50 countries.
John is married with two daughters. In his spare time he is learning Brazilian, Portuguese and surfing.
