I’m a baker and food writer with an entrepreneurial spirit, currently based in London, UK. 

With a masters degree from the Royal College of Art, I originally worked as an industrial designer between 2010 - 2015, in roles that varied from initial concept design to production systems and sales. In 2015 I began teaching part time on the Art Foundation and MA Product Design courses at Kingston University up until 2018.

In 2014, I retrained as a baker and have since had a variety of jobs within hospitality as both a baker and chef, running my own businesses and working with and for food related social enterprises. I founded and ran educational micro-bakery The Bread Companion between 2014 and 2021.  In 2020, I published cookbook, ’How to eat your Christmas tree,’ (Hardie Grant), which led to lots more food writing opportunities for magazines and journals. I currently write and produce the ‘How to eat alone,’ podcast which touches on issues of solitude and solo dining.

Though originally from London with Cypriot heritage, I have travelled extensively, studied in Milan in 2008 and relocated to Lisbon between 2018 - 2021 in search of new foodie opportunities in an up-and-coming city. Whilst living in Portugal, I ran food-related events, continued to run my microbakery and was involved in a restaurant.

The Covid-19 pandemic gave me much needed space to reassess and during this time I closed the chapter on several businesses that I had been involved with prior to 2020. I returned to London at the end of 2021 and, since then, have been freelancing in various bakeries and kitchens, working on self-directed writing and research projects and writing about food for journals. 

Below you can find my CV.  Gaps in my CV can usually be attributed to a flare up of the autoimmune condition that I suffer with, which means that I have to hit the breaks on work for a few months.
