Friend of the Fest returns to the Farm

I’m a fourth generation builder from North London, specialising in bricklaying and plastering. Married to Sarah and proud dad of three lovely daughters.

I somehow found myself a finalist on 2014’s Great British Bake Off (The Great British Baking Show in the US), earning a record five ‘Star Baker’ awards in the process. It was a fantastic experience from start to finish that has taught me so much and introduced me to some lifelong friends. I blog weekly, sharing some of my favourite things to bake and keeping you posted on what I’m up to.

When I’m not building or baking I love the great outdoors: camping, fishing, hiking, cycling, gardening and walking my Vizsla, Leia. I’m also passionate about wildlife and completed a BSc in Biodiversity & Conservation at Birkbeck, University of London in 2012.
