Having grown up in the hospitality industry, becoming a chef was the only career path I ever considered. Food has always been a huge passion of mine and I’m lucky that I’ve been able to turn that passion into my career.

I started my culinary training at catering college in Glasgow, where I also worked in one of the city’s most prestigious hotels, One Devonshire Gardens. Like many young chefs, I aspired to work at the highest level, so I moved to London to work in the 3 Michelin star Fat Duck, at that time voted the number one restaurant in the world. Since then I’ve gone on to be a quarter finalist on the first series of BBC’s Masterchef The Professionals in 2008, I’ve held several head chef positions of my own and even spent time teaching in a well-known cookery school. I have now ventured away from restaurant kitchens and spend my time as a private chef and consultant.

I’m a regular chef on STV’s live topical weekday program Live at Five and can be found demonstrating at many food festivals across the UK.
