Where is your favourite place in the world? 


My timber framing career started after qualifying as a carpenter and joiner at Bath College. Moving from carpentry into sales, I have been fortunate enough to have been involved in some incredible projects. From the restoration and repair of Windsor Castle and Stirling Castle to full new residential and commercial builds.

Having a real interest in the culinary world I have been lucky enough to work with River Cottage, Waitrose, at a cookery school with James Martin as well as a pub for Rick Stein.

Having recently joined Carpenter Oak, I hope to extend my portfolio of timber projects.
