"We always have something to learn from the riches nature spreads before us."  

-J. Alcock

 

Born: Perth, WA

 

History: I grew up in the South West of Western Australia, surrounded by fresh and natural produce. At the age of fourteen I spent weekends and school holidays in the kitchen of a boutique winery restaurant which inspired me to pursue an apprenticeship at Burswood Intercontinental Resort Casino. It is here that I was fortunate enough to work with internationally recognised chefs.

 

After completing my apprenticeship, I was offered the opportunity to be involved in the establishment and operation of some of Perth's finest restaurants including (A)lure. I then moved toMelbourne to further my career at Crown's JJ's Bar and Grill.
