I'm currently Activation Manager Bacardi, but before that I managed the bar at Oblix. Previously I have worked in bars all over the world, but in London I was at The Connaught.

Bad ass barman/rock n roll moment?

I have served two of the James Bond actors and when one ordered his martini it wasn’t a vesper and he asked for it stirred, not shaken. It was a complete disappointment! The other kept to neat whisky.

Ever done it on a bar?

Served great cocktails? Yes.

What's next for you?

To be the next James Shearer! I am really excited with everything that is happening at Oblix bar, James is one of the most exciting visionaries in the industry, and it is great to work with someone so enthusiastic every day.

Best/worst chat up lines you've heard at a bar?

There are no good chat up lines! The worst was when I worked at The Connaught, a customer walked out without paying, when I ran after him with the bill he asked if I was running after him to give him my number… Hmmm don’t think not paying your bill is a way to impress.

Tell us a secret or something we don't know?

If I told you it wouldn’t be a secret.

If you were to make a barchick cocktail, what would you put in it?

I think someone’s favourite spirit is reflective of their personality. I would make something Tequila based: fiery, strong and bold but of course complex. It would have to be with Don Julio 1942 Tequila to keep it classy.

How do you like your Martini?

A chilled martini glass, a spray of vermouth, gin straight from the freezer and 2 olives.

What did you want to be as a kid?

I love to fish and when I was a kid I wanted to travel the world fishing, and make a documentary out of it.
