After graduating from what is now Manchester Metropolitan University, I had a career in corporate hotels and regional management for a road-side restaurant group who opened the first budget hotel chain in the UK. Following this I became Chef Patron of a Michelin / Good Food Guide listed restaurant with my wife before returning to study as a lecturer at the University of Huddersfield. I taught and led Higher Education programmes at a large inner-city further education college for eight years before joining Oxford Brookes in 2001. I gained an MSc in Hospitality Management at LeedsMet University in 1998 .
