Growing up in Nutfield and now based in Reigate, I have a degree from Nottingham Trent University in Fashion Design along with experience in freelance alterations and bespoke dressmaking.

Before returning to my roots in sewing, I worked for both luxury and high street brands in London, which has given me a unique perspective on both men's and women's contemporary fashion.

Career highlights so far include being part of the alterations team for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and co-founding the Reigate School of Sewing in 2016.
