I was always passionate about the past from a very early age, growing up in an area of the UK with a rich and diverse history from early humans, the Roman Empire through to the Industrial revolution. My secondary history studies led me to pursue a Bachelors degree in History and Archaeology at the University of Wales and later, after spending a period of time travelling in south east Asia, a PGCE in History at University of the West of England.
I have since taught in Wales and the south west of England for seven years before making the move to my first international role as Head of House at a large school in Qatar with over 4500 students. After two amazing years working in the Middle East, I felt that the time was right for a new challenge and the decision to move to the British School of Guangzhou with my family was an easy one. The opportunity to work with outstanding students and teachers in such a highly reputable school was one I could not let pass me by.
In my spare time I try to keep fit by playing football and cricket, however, my love of food and cooking often counters these efforts. I also enjoy playing guitar (though not very well) and of course, spending as much time as possible playing with my daughter.
