Originally from the UK, I have lived in Turkey, Belgium and France before my move to Thailand to join Regents International School Pattaya. I initially joined as a Primary Teacher and soon took on roles as Curriculum Coordinator and Year Leader in Year 5. More recently, following my experience of Child Psychology as part of my Master’s Degree, I decided to return to Early Years as a fantastic opportunity to relive my childhood all over again!
I have a teaching spouse, Juliet, who works in Nursery, and a son, Flynn, who is also in Nursery. I maintain my outdoor interests by SCUBA diving, rock climbing, mountain biking as well as lots of other outdoor sports. I also love languages and am fluent in French and Turkish. Before I decided to pursue a teaching career, I worked as an interpreter for the European Commission. I also worked as a police officer and got to escort Lewis Hamilton and David Coulthard around Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit!
