I studied for three years at Birmingham College of Food and gained my level 3 qualifications in kitchen and larder, and pastry. I left and travelled around the UK in fine dining restaurants and hotels until I decided to change my career path and go into teaching. Since I have been at UCB I have taught many subjects and levels but always stayed within the Kitchens and catering. I have had the honour of training and supporting Junior Team England to 2 European culinary competitions, 1 Culinary Olympics and 1 Culinary World Cup (6 silver medals and 1 bronze).
My main focus is teaching Culinary Arts management and Chef Managers of the future.
