"We all face failures and successes in our careers, but when you’re flying solo, it comes down on you and only you." Where did you grow up? I was born in Bristol and shortly afterwards my family moved to Hertfordshire, just north of London. I grew up there until I was 18. After school I made my way up north to Leeds University where I studied Philosophy, Psychology and History of Science for three years before heading down to Hackney, which seemed the obvious place to further my foodie dreams.
