Favourite WatchHouse coffee?
I always enjoy trying new coffees on the cupping table, but for an everyday caffeine fix I’m an oat flat white drinker. Yep, I said it!
Describe the feel of your House in 3 words:
Best in class.
What do you enjoy most about working in hospitality?
Crossing paths with so many human beings and making a difference. Great coffee, a little laugh, a helping hand. Sometimes the difference will be very small and sometimes life changing.
What kept you sane during lockdown?
I allowed myself to just do nothing and take a break from forever chasing the next big thing. It was a very mind-cleansing experience.

Recommend us a podcast.
My all-time favourite? Desert Island Discs (Kirsty Young was the best presenter!) It’s just fascinating how many different lives people can lead, and hearing about what drives them and the countless possibilities awaiting us.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
One of my old managers once told me: “This is your shop. You need to deal with it, no one is going to do it for you”. A little harsh! But it made me realise what a real sense of responsibility is, not only at work, but in general life. I stopped being afraid of doing the difficult things.
What are you passionate about?
Life. Kindness. Helping each other out. Family. Art. Volleyball. DOGS!
What’s your favourite holiday destination?
I love going to a new destination every time, and the older I get the further I would like to travel. I will end up on the Moon!
