I gained a nationwide following for my outrageously engineered creations when I reached the final of The Great British Bake Off in 2016. I now divide my time between Aerospace research, writing & presenting live events and contributing to TV, radio & online features. I've been thrilled to work with clients including the BBC, ITV, Warner Brothers, Channel 5, nPower and the IET.


In 2018 & 2019, I toured a live "bakineering" show around the UK and Ireland to inspire the next generation of engineers.

Have an idea? Get in touch and let's work together.


About Me

I was born in Belfast and grew up in a small town called Holywood, in Northern Ireland. I hopped across the Irish Sea to study Engineering at the University of Cambridge and for the last 7 years have worked at Rolls-Royce, where I research Future Aircraft Concepts.


A self-confessed jack of all trades, in my spare time I love to bake, sing (both chorally and in musical theatre), travel and ski. There is also quite a bit of eating. 


Applying for The Great British Bake Off was one of the best things I ever did. Becoming the precision engineer who bakes is something I'm embracing with both hands as it brings together my 2 loves - food and science.


I regularly write, produce and present "bakineering" shows across the country, and am pursuing my dream of becoming an engineering presenter. If you need a baked good engineered, I reckon I'm your man. Check out the Media page for an idea of the kind of things I get up to.
