I have also worked in elite sport both within a player development and academic role. Additionally, I have been fortunate to enjoy working semi-professionally as a football player through my teaching and this has complimented my teaching and coaching.
My sincere admiration for the Nord Anglia philosophy made my decision to join BIS Abu Dhabi as I believe it aligns seamlessly with my own personal philosophy and approach to education and I'm proud to be supporting the school on our journey towards excellence.
Sport has played a significant role in my life, particularly as an aspiring athlete. It has given me opportunities that I am truly grateful for and as a result athlete development and sports coaching has become a particular hobby of mine. As a junior athlete I represented Wales in Squash, and within football was fortunate to represent Great Britain Students at the World University Games. I am a proud Welshman from Cardiff and married to Hayley.
As an experienced teacher combined with extensive experience within elite sport and athlete development, I have been looking for a school with a philosophy and approach to learning that can truly facilitate both learning and sports performance together. I believe I have found that ‘perfect blend’ within Nord Anglia’s approach and its 21st century vision. As a result, I enjoy working within an establishment that is aligned to facilitating not only academic but also sporting excellence.
