Deputy Head of Primary

Dubai is my fifth posting abroad, originally from New Zealand, I have taught and lived in England, Kenya, Brunei and the Philippines. 

I am passionate about education and ensuring children enjoy their time at school while being challenged and engaged, reach their full potential and become fully involved in the wider school life. I have nearly ten years of leadership experience within International schools and believe a school is a vital and important part of the community.

Outside of school I enjoy rugby, touch rugby, tennis, mountain biking, travelling and reading. My wife Valerie and two daughters, Lea and Zoe thoroughly enjoy being part of NAS Dubai and making the most out of all that is has to offer.
