I was born and raised in South Africa, by an English mother and Greek father. I spent most of my life in the city of Cape Town. I have a background in architecture and worked in the industry for a few years before moving to the UK. With a recession in full swing, I couldn't find work in the architectural industry and ended up working for a company designing printed materials. Since then I opened my own business and have been running it for the past 5 years. I started off growing vegetables in my back garden but didn't have enough space to grow everything I wanted and have since rented an allotment to expand on what I was doing at home. I hope to one day have my own market garden here in Gloucestershire.
