Below you can view some of my sample work, which will be regularly updated:
Yet the painter, for me, remains a mystery. What face really lay behind such magical artistry? What was the essence of his heart, his outlook? What was his authentic message, which he expressed through the medium of painting? The man, who I had the good fortune of getting to know and who never hesitated in extending his friendship, was reminiscent of those portraits of artists throughout history on canvas, and since the middle of the nineteenth century, in photography.
However the individual whom I consider is in fact, remarkably ordinary. By which I mean his manner and behaviour are not self-consciously that of an artist – he suffers from no artistic affectations or ostentations, which is ultimately the shop window of his person. He welcomed me unreservedly, evidently pleased to meet me. He was relaxed and friendly and curious to get to know me. Or perhaps to remember. Such was the man who immediately set me at ease, and continues to do so: there are no optical tricks or illusions with Christian. Rather, an unwavering authenticity, an unchecked sensitivity and even-handedness, all part of the shared confidence in our acquaintance for which we need one another.
不过，画家本人对我来说一直是个谜。如此魔法般的艺术才能究竟遮盖着怎样的面孔？什么是他的心和态度的本质？在他通过绘画所传达的讯息中，什么是他的真实本意？ 我很有幸结识了这个人，他从不在伸出友谊之手时有所犹豫，他让人想起所有绘画史的画家们和 19 世纪中叶以来的摄影艺术家们的肖像。

Numerous countries (e.g., Canada, Australia, and Japan) tax foreigners on the gains realized on transfers of interests in foreign entities that invest directly or indirectly in real estate in those countries. In the last few years, actions taken by tax authorities in India, China, Brazil, Indonesia, and other non-Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries have highlighted the possibility of taxing a broader range of indirect share transfers by foreigners. This article argues that taxing indirect transfers can have vital policy significance in countries where foreign inbound investments are actively traded in offshore markets: it not only deters tax avoidance, but may also stanch legal base erosion 一 the substitution of offshore investment structures for legal mechanisms in onshore markets. The successful implementation of a broad policy of taxing indirect transfers, however, depends crucially on securing voluntary taxpayer compliance. To this end, this article proposes to rationalize existing practices for taxing indirect transfers in two major ways: (1) striking a better balance between ex ante and ex post lawmaking; and (2) consistently treating taxable indirect transfers as sales of underlying target companies (thus allowing conforming adjustments in tax basis). These improvements better target tax avoidance, eliminate arbitrary consequences, and generate market incentives that facilitate compliance.
在许多国家（比如加拿大、澳大利亚和日本），若存在外国实体直接或间接投资于该国房地产，而且有外国人因转让其在这些外国实体中的权益而获得收益，则将对这些外国人征税。在过去几年中，印度、中国、巴西、印度尼西亚和其他非经济合作与发展组织（经合组织）国家的税务机关采取的行动突显了在更大范围内对外国人间接股份转让征税的可能性。本文认为，在外国入境投资于离岸市场活跃交易的国家中，对间接转让征税具有重要的政策意义：这不仅遏制避税，还可防止法律基础遭到侵蚀——这种侵蚀是指用离岸投资结构替换在岸市场的法律机制。但是，能否成功执行对间接转让征税的广泛政策，关键取决于能否确保纳税人自愿遵从法规。为此，本文提出两种主要方式，以对间接转让征税的现有做法进行合理化： (1) 更好地平衡事前和事后立法；和 (2) 始终如一地将应税间接转让视作对标的公司的出售（从而允许对课税标准进行一致性调整）。这些改进能更有效针对避税，消除任意性结果，并形成促进法规遵从性的市场激励机制。但是，能否成功执行对间接转让征税的广泛政策，关键取决于能否确保纳税人自愿遵从法规。为此，本文提出两种主要方式，以对间接转让征税的现有做法进行合理化： (1) 更好地平衡事前和事后立法；和 (2) 始终如一地将应税间接转让视作对标的公司的出售（从而允许税基方面符合标准的调整）。这些改进能更有效针对避税，消除任意性结果，并形成促进法规遵从性的市场激励机制。
