Where are you currently working?

I am currently working at the Artesian Bar at the Langham Hotel in London as the Bar Manager 

What is your favourite cocktail?

It depends who I am drinking with however you cannot beat a good Margarita

Ever had a bad-ass/rock n roll bartending moment?

Plenty especially working at some high profile events, but I’ve had to sign NDAs so not allowed to speak about them!  Saying that it was pretty cool being invited to a gig by a band and being flown there on their private jet – that was pretty surreal!

Where will we find you on your nights off?

My local market in Tooting, it’s filled with awesome bars, restaurants, pop ups plus the best curries in London as there is a huge influence from the Sri Lankan community.  

If you weren’t tending bar, what would you be doing?

Bit different from what I do now but linked to what I was doing when I left school but I’d like to be a war correspondent for the BBC or a travel photographer for war zones. 

What is your desert island bottle?

Krug 1996 or a bottle of Michter’s 25 year old Bourbon 

What is your hangover cure?

Water, sleep, cold shower and a Bloody Mary 

If you were gonna create a cocktail for BarChick, what would you make?

A twist on a margarita with a little bit of spice and a blanc du blanc champagne, shaken and served up.
