I was born in Oxford, but my parents wanted to live in a warmer place, so when I was 4, we moved to Albatera, a little town in Spain. My parents bought a land with a house literally falling apart. Along the years they have rebuilt it from scratch and turned it into a beautiful villa.

I couldn´t have asked for a better childhood. I loved the sunny days at the beach and enjoyed the family barbecues by the pool. I felt like paradise. A great time to remember.

Four years ago I left my family behind and moved with my fiancé to UK to find work. 

How did you start with mixology?

That is a crazy story. More than 3 years ago I was working at a wedding venue and we needed more people as it was a busy time. So, our boss called a guy he used to work with. There was something mysterious about this guy. He was very cool and charming. Later that day, this guy called me at the bar and handed me a drink in a martini glass with a slice of passion fruit floating on top. Looking back now, I know it was a "Pornstar Martini", but at that time, I had absolutely no idea. But it worked. It was the best drink I have ever had and I was completely hooked! That gentleman introduced me to the amazing world of Mixology and now I wanted to explore it.
