I’ve always loved baking and creating special treats for people. I was born profoundly deaf, as was my twin brother (who is also a chef), but I never let that stop me from achieving my dreams. When I was in high school one of my teachers gave me advice to travel the world to see what I could do in the future. It was in my travels that I discovered the art of being a pâtissier and I have dedicated myself to this craft ever since. I worked at several 5-star hotel in New Zealand and abroad before starting Otti and Olli with my wife Susan. For me baking is both an art and a way of expressing myself. My favorite time of year is Christmas when I can create my trademark gingerbread houses.
