I am a senior bartender at the American Bar at The Savoy Hotel in London. During my tenure there we have been awarded the title of ‘worlds best bar’ twice and I have had the opportunity to travel the world and do guest appearances and host masterclasses as a result of this success. Through working in one of the most famous bars and hotels in the world I have gained a unique insight into the world of the food and beverage industry at the highest level and have adapted a skill for delivering that experience through masterclasses.
