Best known for | Unshakable positive attitude while in the weeds, often the busier it is, the happier I am. As well as my passion for creating cocktails with foraged and garden ingredients.
Favourite “at work” memory | Hard to say, lots of them, and depends on the context there’s lots of stories to share. Let’s go with the day my partner, before we started dating, sat at the bar to read a book and drink a Sangria.
