FOR OVER 15 YEARS, I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN THE HOSPITALITY AND WINE INDUSTRIES, WORKING FOR MANY  COMPANIES SUCH AS MARRIOTT HOTELS, THROUGH TO SMALL, INDEPENDENT RESTAURANTS AND BARS. 

IT WAS WHILST WORKING IN MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA THAT I WAS DRAWN TO THE WINE INDUSTRY. WORKING AS A COMMIS SOMMELIER IN A HUGELY WINE FOCUSSED GROUP MEANT THAT UPON ARRIVING BACK TO THE UK, I WANTED NOTHING MORE THAN TO WORK FULL TIME IN THE WINE INDUSTRY. 

I WORKED FOR MAJESTIC WINE WAREHOUSES FOR 4 YEARS , WITH TWO OF THOSE YEARS SPECIALISING IN THE COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT AS KEY ACCOUNT MANAGER. AFTER MAJESTIC IT WAS BACK TO THE FLOOR WHERE I SERVED AS HEAD SOMMELIER AT THE HOTEL DU VIN, BRISTOL WHERE I LEARNT SO MUCH FROM WINE INDUSTRY LEGENDS SUCH AS RONAN SAYBURN MS, GERARD BASSETT MS MW OBE AND MANY MORE, whilst ACHIEVING both regional and national wine list awards . 

FROM HOTEL DU VIN I WAS LURED TO WORK FOR RED & WHITE WINES, AN AWARD WINING SMALL MERCHANT RUN BY LIAM STEEVENSON MW. LIAM IS SOMEONE THAT I LEARNED A LOT FROM AND I NOW PROUDLY CALL HIM A CLIENT, AS WELL AS A FRIEND. 

SINCE LEAVING RED & WHITE WINES, I HAVE WORKED FOR EUROCAVE, THE CREATORS OF THE WINE CABINET. I HAVE SOLD WINE, I HAVE SERVED WINE, AND I NOW HELP PEOPLE TO SERVE, SELL AND STORE THEIR WINES CORRECTLY. I'VE BEEN WITH EUROCAVE FOR 5 YEARS STARTING AS COMMERCIAL MANAGER UK PROVIDING THE GREAT AND GOOD OF THE UK HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY WITH THE TOOLS TO ENHANCE THEIR WINE OFFERING. I WAS THEN PROMOTED TO GENERAL MANAGER OF THE UK BUSINESS WHERE I WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DAY TO DAY RUNNING OF THE UK SUBSIDIARY OF EUROCAVE.  IN THIS ROLE I SPENT 3 YEARS ASSISTING BOTH CONSUMERS AND TRADES A LIKE WITH HOW TO STORE THEIR WINES AND DESIGNING MODULAR AND SEMI-BESPOKE WINE DISPLAYS ALL USING THE WORLD FAMOUS EUROCAVE PRODUCTS. I AM UNIQUELY QUALIFIED TO DISCUSS THESE PRODUCTS AND many other brands and bespoke wine cellar creators. AFTER 3 YEARS AS UK GENERAL MANAGER I WAS PROMOTED AGAIN TO THE ROLE OF GLOBAL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER WHERE MY ROLE was TO SEARCH FOR NEW, DYNAMIC AND PASSIONATE DISTRIBUTORS FOR EUROCAVE PRODUCTS AROUND THE WORLD.

I am now utilising all my experience in the HOSPITALITY, wine and wine storage worlds to assist private customers and businesses with their products and design needs along with brand representation and sales.
