EARLY CAREER

Starting my working life as a chef, coordinating, planning and promoting events from small weddings to International events such as Wine Australia at Darling Harbor in 1994.

 

My creative side awarded me the honour of competing in a number of competitions endorsed by the Australasian Guild Of Professional Cooks. My achievements led me to explore other avenues of creativity, including fashion and textiles and graphic design.
