I have always had a love of luxury and in particular a nose for fine fragrance. When I was a child, we used to go to my grandmother’s for Christmas. She loved good perfume. Every year she would give my mother, sister and me each a tiny bottle of Chanel No 5.
I was born and grew up in America. I did my first degree in English literature at Harvard University and came to Scotland in 1999 to pursue a Masters degree in theatre directing at The Royal Conservatoire in Glasgow.
