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 in to 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 University College Birmingham I have taught in further education and higher education. For 5 years I taught on and was module lead for specialist confectionery and advanced patisserie and confectionery within our Bakery and patisserie foundation degree.

In 2021 I was appointed senior lecturer for Further Education in bakery and I am currently programme lead for level 3. I have many connections within the industry and am a strong believer in wanting to give our students the best opportunities.
