About me

One of the leading faces of the global cocktail scene, working in partnership with Hannah Sharman-Cox. The duo are the co-owners and organisers of London Cocktail Week - the ​largest cocktail event of its kind in the world - and consultants, contributors and connectors for the drinks industry, with their brand new consultancy HANDS London. London Cocktail Week began in 2010 and to date the festival has welcomed hundreds of thousands of guests, inspired a new generation of Londoners to demand better drinking experiences and injected millions of pounds of revenue directly back into the London hospitality trade. The pair have worked on almost all elements of brand building for both a trade and consumer audience and worked as both client and agency in all scenarios, and so are well placed to add value across a number of areas, bringing their vast knowledge of the brand, bar and consumer landscape in the UK. With a proven track record of working together to deliver globally-recognised campaigns - their partnership means quick, efficient, creative results and the reassurance that two heads are better than one.

      • London Cocktail Week is an enormous celebration of our capital's fantastic cocktail scene and the biggest event of it’s kind in the world with £6 signature cocktails and immersive experiences in hundreds of the best bars in the city! In these times, when London, and more specifically the hospitality industry in London, needs as much support and positivity as possible - we feel that London Cocktail Week 2020 is perhaps our most important festival to date.
