About The Event

Born: London- family moved to Perth when I was 2yo

History: I have a 24 year career in hospitality working in some amazing award winning restaurants from Perth, Melbourne and Townsville. Shortly after completing my apprenticeship I became a Sous Chef at one of Perth busiest and most successful restaurants Coco’s Riverside Restaurant.  After 3 years in this position I decided to head to Melbourne to grow my culinary knowledge and passion. Working in Melbourne for 7 years at some amazing venues, while at Donavon’s Restaurant. A move to a venue called Young and Jacksons enabled me to take on a role as Head Chef for the first time, while in this position the venue won numerous awards, the hotel was sold in 2004 and it was then a time to move on .Time for a warmer environment and to be closer to family, I was offered the opportunity to come to Townsville to assist with the setup and to be the Executive Chef at a new venue called The Watermark in 2004. The Watermark was awarded A Star rating in the Good Food Guide, the first restaurant in the city to be recognised for this award.

In 2010 with business partners we purchased a very run down restaurant and transformed it into Jam Corner. 2012 Jam corner was awarded a Chef Hat in the Australian Good Food Guide.
