I was born in England, in Birmingham, but lived in Africa from an early age, in Zambia and South Africa. It was an enriching and beautiful experience, but I returned to England to be closer to my family in 2011.
I qualified in catering management in my early twenties, and found great joy in cooking, the greatest reward being when I ran my own catering company for 13 years and saw how people enjoyed their eating experiences. It also taught me a lot about event management and detailed planning.
I have many interests, and always enjoy a new challenge, but when not planning, writing and delivering ceremonies, you might catch me with a spoon in hand (I still love to cook!) or a good book—normally indulging in a good murder mystery—or happily crafting away.
