Originally from Wales, moved to Sydney 6 years ago and have been living in Bondi for the last 5 years.
Career hospitality professional for more than 15 years and across three continents. I settled in Bondi where I moved away from the front of house to look after the business side of my two venues – Panama House and Isabel, both in the Pacific Building. I also am the international Brand Ambassador for the Australian-owned Tequila company – Sesion -having worked with them for four years assisting in the development of their brand and profile both in Australia and the US.
I am particularly passionate about developing the social scene and vibrancy of Bondi and its surrounds, in the hope of having it compete on a world stage along with other great beachside communities. I believe that a strong community identity is crucial to business success in a seasonal suburb such as Bondi, and that nothing is impossible with a positive attitude, hard work and the right group of people.
An avid sportsman – my spare time revolves around golf or tennis – now that my rugby days are behind me. But any time Wales are playing I won’t be far from a screen. If I’m not at one of my venues, ill either be soaking in a podcast in Centennial park, or be found with a cocktail in hand at Neighbourhood or Icebergs.
