Just over four years and counting.
Describe your job in one sentence…
As a Senior Graphic Designer, I am responsible for conceptualising and implementing design solutions for our many international markets that meet marketing strategies and the wider brand values of Chef Works.
Best thing about working in the hospitality industry?
It’s fast-paced and varied.

Describe a day in your life at Chef Works HQ…
Design, edits, edits and more edits, until we are ready to print/publish.
Favourite item from the Chef Works collection?
The Denver Chef’s Cross-back Bib Apron from our Urban Collection. It looks so great and is also really practical.
Favourite restaurant, café, bar?
In general, I like the hole-in-the-wall, greasy spoon type of eateries and the Long Bar in New Orleans, USA.
To be a good father and husband.

And finally, what would you choose as your death row meal?
It’s between an assorted array of quality sushi with a glass of wine/cold beer or a plate of quality southern fried chicken, collard greens and a cold beer. The ‘cold beer’ gets mentioned twice…
