Bio

Prior to becoming a consultant, my formative years in hospitality took me across Europe with stints at some of the finest hotels, coupled with studies at Cornell in upstate New York. With a focus on F&B, I eventually went on to run my own restaurants in SW London – Balham & Fulham, which I sold in 2012. I was fortunate enough to be welcomed back into hotels in 2010 by Bespoke Hotels where I stayed for 7 years, rising to the role of Regional Operations Manager responsible for two hotels in central London. Since 2017 I have helped establish HotelPartner, a technology enabled revenue management service, in the UK, alongside other consultancy roles that I have undertaken.
