I have been lucky enough to work with some very talented chefs throughout my career helping ignite my passion for food. A few decades later that passion still burns now fueled with a different vibe from that very first day I walked into a professional kitchen aged 14.

My career has taken me far and wide after being somewhat blessed given the opportunity of Head Chef at the young age of 22. Earning and maintaining converted awards such as AA Rosettes, my early success continued and it was not long before the Good Food Guide came knocking and Michelin recognition followed.

But What Now? In the words of Mr Ramsey “you are only as good as your last service”.

Fast forward some years work allows me to support the industry in a freelance capacity, most recently opening doors working with Forest Green Rover FC (The Worlds Greenest & Only Vegan Football Club) including their sister company company Little Green Devils developing and producing plant based, allergen free foods into the school sector across the UK
