I originally studied in advanced professional cookery. After graduating, I then went and worked at Claridge’s hotel London, as a pastry chef before setting up my own catering business, specializing in fine dining, afternoon tea and celebration cakes. I then moved into the Further Education section as a lecturer in patisserie and cake decoration.

I moved to University College Birmingham in 2014 as a lecturer in Bakery. Since starting at UCB, I have taught in further education in cake decoration, confectionery and bread across level 1-3. I am currently lead IQA for bakery and am module leader for specialist confectionery.
