About Me

With more than 30 years experience in the service industry, I am a true generalist, with extensive skills and experience in all facets of the hospitality industry.

Having worked across many different accommodation types from city based casino properties, to luxury resorts in remote locations, I have gained experience in all areas of hotel operations.

This experience, balanced with strong financial acumen, and excellent human resource skills underpinning a situational leadership style whilst being creative and innovative enables me to excel in my chosen field.

  • I enjoy visiting new countries and immersing myself in the local culture whilst meeting new people and experiencing their way of life
  • I enjoy watching live shows, whether it be ballet, concerts or stage plays, from amateur school productions to professional events. It stimulates the senses and evokes thoughts and emotions that allow me to experience something new.
  • I love to write. Both professionally and personally.
