I have worked in various fields of ICT and Computing since 1994, including stints in programing, website development, networking, and now teaching.
I have been lucky enough to have taught all over the world – from Sydney, Australia, to Singapore, Malaysia and the exoticism of Burgess Hill in the UK. In each school I have held a position of responsibility, and I am thrilled to be part of the British International School Abu Dhabi at a time when Computing is at the very forefront of education.
A recent professional achievement includes my receipt of an Apple Distinguished Educators award in 2013 - an award that is held by less than 3,000 people worldwide. My decision to join BIS Abu Dhabi was very simple – I wanted to immerse myself in an environment that really pushes the boundaries of learning for our students, that nurtures ambition and that offers the highest academic challenge. I know that I have found that in BIS Abu Dhabi, and I am thrilled to be joining the school.
I am a father to three very active children, who either keep me young or age me hourly depending on whom you ask. I strongly believe that travel broadens the mind, and my aspiration for my children is that they acquire all of the necessary skills to become truly global citizens.
My sporting interests include swimming, running and the odd game of cricket, and as a educator I like to tinker with such thorny concepts as quantum computing, theories of learning and programming languages.
