I have had a broad and varied career which has given me a wonderful breadth of experience & knowledge that helps me in my role at Gallery.

Over the years, I have developed a 360-degree view of retail and its supply chain in the furniture and home furnishings market, with an understanding of key communication, logistical and financial factors. I have worked with, and so understand the needs of, independents and national retailers alike, and have learnt how to adapt to the fast-moving changes in the retail sector, especially the growth and impact of the internet.

On the personal front, I moved back from London to the Midlands, where I grew up, in 2016. I now live with my fiancée and two crazy Jack Russells, Bertie and Rustie, in beautiful Warwickshire. I have a creative streak and love textiles, so home interiors is a passion. I also like to discover handmade product by true artisans. Getting out and seeing the world either near or far is always on my agenda.
