I am originally from the town of Alnwick in the north east of England. After completing my A-Levels, I went on to study Mathematics and Economics at the University of Sheffield where I gained a BSc (Hons). Following this I pursued my career ambition of teaching and completed a PGCE mathematics course, also at the University of Sheffield. 



I started my teaching career at Westfield School, a large comprehensive school of around 1400 students in Sheffield. During my first year at Westfield, I quickly gained promotion to the role of Assistant Subject Leader, where I was responsible for the progress of students in Key Stage 3.

I very much enjoyed the three hugely successful years that I spent at Westfield, however I craved a different challenge both professionally and personally. Coupled with the fact that my wife and I have always dreamed of living in the US, I welcomed the opportunity to work at BISW with open arms. 

Outside of school I enjoy participating in sports, particularly running, cycling and going to the gym. I am also an avid fan of ice hockey, American football and soccer. In the school holidays I enjoy travelling and visiting local attractions.  

It is a pleasure to teach maths at BISW, which has such a culturally diverse student population. Students and staff alike share an ethos of mutual respect and high ambition, leading to a unique and unparalleled teaching and learning environment.
