About me

It is a goal and aspiration of mine to be able to live and work in some of the best cities around the world. I have only recently finished a year living and working in Melbourne, Australia. I am now in London seeking an opportunity for the chance to prove my ability to accomplish more than what I feel I have only been limited to as a Pastry Chef. It is my goal to further my pursuit for personal growth in continuing to learn from others with the hope that I may have something to teach as well.
