From University I went on to take up a position of Piano and Vocal tutor with Kirklees Music School where I went into different schools as a peripatetic music teacher. I thoroughly enjoyed this as it gave me access to the Junior National curriculum as well as leading choirs of different ages.
In the summer of 2007, I took up a position as Music teacher at Westborough High School. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there but after six year teaching there I was ready for a change. I had always wanted to teach abroad and after researching Abu Dhabi it seemed like this was the ideal place for me to move to continue to develop as a teacher and I knew that it would also be a new challenge.
I come from a town called Mirfield which is situated near Leeds in the North of England. From a young age I was interested in music and I can play the Piano, Guitar, Bass, Drums and I also can sing. Before moving here I was part of a covers band called Northern Gold where I played the keys and was backing vocalist. We toured the North of England playing many different weddings, birthday parties and other functions.
I also am a big sport fan and like to watch Football and Rugby (both Union and League) I support the best team in the world (just that nobody knows it yet) Huddersfield Town. Whilst I was at University I also played Lacrosse where I won most improved player of the year.
