With an early start whilst still in school I have worked in the service industry for some considerable time. I began as a waiter with the Hilton Hotel group where I became proficient at silver service and gained my first experiences with large scale events. Stopping for military service, her Majesty’s Royal Air Force provided me with a wealth of experiences and was where I first started with the accounting side of my career. After leaving the Air Force I moved to London and whilst helping a friend was offered a position in a bar in Covent Garden. Moving quickly from bar man to bar manager the owners then asked me to move to Brighton and be manager and licensee of their new venture there. At the time still young and missing the big city life I returned to London to work for Marco Pierre White at Quo Vardis in Soho. I was asked to move to The Pharmacy, Damien Hirst’s new establishment but a twist of fate gave me a change of direction and I began working in the patient accounts department of the Cromwell private hospital. It was during this period that the move to Portugal happened and at first a return to the service industry then back into accounts with one of the main expatriate newspaper publications. Over the last few years my experience has been amalgamated into the catering industry where my main focus is the administration but gives me plenty of opportunity to blow the cobwebs away and help the team provide exceptionally superior service to our clients.
