Tell us about yourself?

When I don’t have a glass in my hand, I’m usual planning my next global trip, navigating a muddy field or falling over in it!  I enjoy running in my spare time and my main hobbies are traveling, cooking and fitness.

How long have you worked in industry?

I’ve worked at Carlsberg UK for 14 years, with 12 years’ experience selling Carlsberg /Crown Cellars wines.  Before that I worked for 7 years, for one of the UK’s leading cider brands. I’ve worked in the Off Trade and On Trade side of the business, both in Wholesale, National Accounts and Free Trade.

What’s your favourite part of your job?

I enjoy travelling around meeting different customers and working alongside the different sales managers. Every day is different and I enjoy all the different varieties each day brings from tastings, to teaching WSET and creating wine lists.

What’s your favourite wine?
