“If in doubt, do it now”

A child of the 1980s with the poor/epic taste in music, movies and style dependant on your inclination. A globe-trotter, a gastronomist, a modern gentleman.

I have managed hospitality in some of the most outstanding Michelin-starred restaurants in France, London and Switzerland, in the most fashionable private member’s clubs of our capital and in some of the most famous 5-star hotels in the world. And loved it.
