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, specialising in fine dining, afternoon tea and celebration cakes. I then moved into the further education sector 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 further education courses in cake decoration, confectionery and bread across levels 1 to 3.

I have mentored students on work placements abroad.

For the past three years I have taught on our Bakery and Patisserie Technology degree programme in confectionery and patisserie.

I am currently lead IQA for bakery and programme manager for our Level 3 Bakery further education programme.
