Meet our owner - Founder Director & Ceo

I founded Cleverchefs with a serious passion for creative food & impeccable service.

I have been a chef for over 22 years in some of the best restaurant's & places around, giving me the vision to understand what perfection means & create offers that stand out in many sectors of the hospitality industry. I have a serious eye for detail and constant drive for perfection, which is what I think gives Cleverchefs that edge above other caterers.

But what makes me tick, well I live and breathe the hospitality world, I'm not ashamed to say I am in love with it. One of my favourite quotes is from Steve Jobs 

"The only way to do great work is to love what you do"

I'm a real foodie and still love to cook, I revel in nurturing new talent and giving people opportunities, using the skills that were passed down to me. It's all about passing it on and making a difference. As a business owner I do feel I have a huge responsibility to help make Cleverchefs as sustainable as possible. I think the one word that people would say sums me up is passionate, I truly believe in what we are doing at Cleverchefs and I hope we can make a difference to peoples experience with food and service.
