Get to know me better
Passionate, Creative, Enthusiastic, Humble and Determined
My first venture into the hospitality industry was at the tender age of 15, I got a job as a pot washer in The Skeffington Arms Hotel, Galway to gain some experience to get into culinary college. After completing the 2 year course at Galway culinary school, I landed my first chef position at the Rockglen country house with Malaysia chef mentor and great friend to this day Chef G Nazri, My culinary path continued, and after a decade in the Michelin realm, perfecting my craft under the mentorship and guidance of Michael Caines, Thomas Keller, Corey Lee, Rasmus Kofoed and Heston Blumenthal, followed by 4 years as head chef of luxury hotels, I realised some time out was needed to reflect on all my learnings and re-assess my continued journey ahead.
