Having completed a degree in Performing Arts, I taught Drama, Music and English in schools in England and Wales before my sense of adventure, professional and personal ambitions took me to Vietnam, where I worked in a Nord Anglia school in the heat of Saigon between 2013 and 2017.
I have always taken great pride in my students’ work, particularly when they have produced outstanding performances in productions and various events. I thoroughly enjoy directing and have great satisfaction from seeing hard work pay off, especially large-scale productions such as musicals. I am particularly focused on ensuring that students have ambition and aspirations.
My wife and I decided to broaden our experiences of the world by moving to Abu Dhabi. Having never visited this part of the world before, we were both determined to seek new adventures and experience different cultures; BIS Abu Dhabi, having so many exciting possibilities, made the decision to move here a very exciting one.
As well as enjoying all that comes with being a teacher of the Performing Arts, I am a sports fanatic. I am at my happiest when watching football, but I enjoy a range of other sports, too. I enjoy going to the theatre, watching concerts, sampling culture through visiting galleries and museums and I love travelling to different places to experience what different cultures and peoples have to offer.
