I grew up in rural Essex, England, and have been baking ever since I can remember. I learnt mainly from my grandma who rarely made less than 6 puddings when I went to visit. After a back operation for scoliosis when I was 15, I was forced to stop doing sport, so I dived head first into baking and all things creative instead. I was lucky enough to be a baker on Season 10 of Channel 4's 'The Great British Bake Off" and made it all the way to the final. I'm currently a Geography teacher in central London, continuing to combine my love of teaching with baking.
