My first job in wine was with Majestic, the UK wine warehouse chain, back in 2001. Six years of retail management was quite enough for me, so I moved to Australia and became a cellar rat in McLaren Vale for the 2008 vintage. While I was there, I wrote a diary of my experiences, which was published on Jancis Robinson's website. After returning to London, I continued writing for Jancis and began developing some other freelance work within the wine trade.
The majority of my work is still published on JancisRobinson.com, comprising articles and tasting notes covering all corners of the wine world, and I now contribute to many other publications. You can also find me speaking at conferences, hosting tastings, and tweeting all about it as I go.
In 2009 I embarked on the Master of Wine course, which I passed in 2015. That was undoubtedly a career highlight, along with headlining the O2 Academy Islington for a Wine Relief fundraiser rock concert and becoming momentarily famous for singing the grape variety song.
In 2019, I moved to Singapore to continue my wine career in Asia. I am now the resident Master of Wine at 67 Pall Mall Singapore, and continue to write regularly for JancisRobinson.com, as well as other publications.
