I became a teacher after many years in industry, working for state owned institutions in the Water Research industry investigating clean water options, before moving to the private sector and using my degree in Applied Biological Sciences to conduct R & D at Kings College London in leukemia research.
I hold an undergraduate degree in Applied Biotechnology, a PGCE and a Masters in Business Administration (MBA). Having worked in industry for a number of years, I chose to move into teaching as I had a passion for sharing knowledge.
I have two children; my eldest is at university in HK majoring in Physics and Material Sciences, having completed his GCSE and A Levels at school in Dubai. My youngest is currently making her final choices for her IB Diploma programme, which she will be completing in Guangzhou.
I have always loved this part of the world; my wife and I spent our honeymoon in Hong Kong a very long time ago (22 years and counting), and I have thoroughly enjoyed the past 2 years in Guangzhou re-exploring this region.
