About Me

Like so many people, I came to the wine industry by accident. After graduating from Oxford University with an MA in English Literature, a fateful bottle of Guiseppe Mascarello Monprivato was to end not only my nascent career in publishing, but to inspire a life-long love of wine.

Since 2011 I have worked in a variety of roles, full-time and freelance, specialising in marketing, copywriting, communications, buying and sales.

In 2016 I took home three scholarships for the WSET Diploma: the Graham's Port Scholarship, The Vintners' Cup and The Vintners' Scholarship for the top mark out of all graduates worldwide. I gained a Distinction in six of eight papers, including the Unit 3 tasting examination, and a Merit for the two remaining papers.

From 2018 to 2023 I was a company director at Theatre of Wine where I worked closely with UK and European suppliers to build a strong range of wines and spirits, both directly imported and sourced from UK-based suppliers, and to generate new on- and off-trade customers for the business. I was also responsible for training up our teams, building and managing company marketing and communications strategy and website, and helping the company to steer a (very successful) course through the challenges of Brexit and Covid. In 2023, I left to establish my consultancy business and work on other projects.

That's about it. As well as keeping in touch with my work here, you can follow me on social media using the links below for my latest news and activity.
