What inspired you to work in hospitality?

When I was 14 the landlady at the local pub enthused, inspired and encouraged me into hospitality and a management degree course at Bournemouth.

Who do you aspire to be like

Jose Mourinho – because he is going grey and can still look cool!

Why Lucknam Park

Because of the great team, great reputation and great guests.

When not at Lucknam Park, how do you spend your time

Wandering around the local fields calling ‘Daisy, Daisy, Come Here.’  ( I guess you should mention that my dog is called Daisy!)

I am currently aiming for the RYA Yacht masters certificate and often take the opportunity to race dinghies at local sailing clubs or take out windsurfers when weather permits.

Should there be no wind,I have been known to wield a golf club but prefers clay pigeon shooting.

Favourite food

Anything that matches a Vosne Romanee or a Gevery Chambertin.

Favourite drink

Vintage Champagne.


Sailing and learning to fly.

Unusual fact about yourself

Hopeless golfer.
