I came to Queen’s College in 2020 as Head Chef, and am responsible for the smooth running of the kitchen and looking after my team. I also create menus and make sure we deliver outstanding food.

Born and raised in the Lake District, I moved to beautiful Oxfordshire 18 years ago. I live with my wife and two boys and we enjoy eating out, travelling the world and going camping in our family’s VW Camper.

I have worked in kitchens for 25 years, making Head Chef of The Lamb Inn, Burford at 23 years old. My other roles have included a number of prestigious hotels. I trained at Lakeside Hotel in Windermere and was Head Chef of The Randolph Hotel in Oxford. Most recently, I was Head Chef at a well-established events catering company in Oxford.
