I started working in the hospitality industry at the age of 18 in France. I ran my own business at the age of 23 and later I decided to move to England. I have worked in Birmingham for the past 23 years and my last job in industry was at Simpson's restaurant in Edgbaston, where I was a manager until I started at University College Birmingham in 2009. I am very passionate about my industry and I am very proud of teaching the next generation. I enjoy the arts and swimming.
