Drama Teacher


I grew up in New Zealand with six siblings in a family that loved theatre. My parents took us to see many shows and as kids we would often create our own plays to perform at home. I loved the magic that could be created from pulling together a few props and one’s imagination.

Many years later I graduated with a Bachelor in Performing Arts from National Academy of Singing in Dramatic Art, New Zealand. I worked in the industry in New Zealand as an actor, improvisor and director, and taught High School Drama for seven years. I also graduated from Christchurch College of Education, New Zealand and received my Diploma of Teaching (Secondary) from Victoria University, Wellington, New Zealand.

I have been teaching at International Schools for ten years across Egypt, Vietnam and China. I’m pleased to be an ISTA (International School Theatre Association) Artist and help run their HS and MS festivals. I am excited to be joining The British School of Beijing Shunyi and look forward to empowering students to put their creative magic on stage.

Outside of the classroom, I like to exercise at the gym and am a keen traveler. I enjoy many sports such as rugby, scuba diving, hiking, skiing and daily meditation.
