I gained my PGCE in Geography at Swansea University in 1989 and have now been teaching for over 30 years. I taught at a Catholic school in the South Wales valleys for 9 years before joining the international teaching community in 2000, and my subsequent teaching journey has now seen me at schools in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and now Asia.
I previously worked for 9 years at a school in Hong Kong and I am looking forward to being a member of the St Andrews community.
As Wales is my home, this has meant that I am of course, a huge rugby fan. I also enjoy tennis, golf and swimming as well as having a passion for travel. I am a enthusiastic volleyball coach and hope to be able to continue this at the school. Unfortunately, my wife and pet cats are still in Wales caring for family but hopefully they will all be joining me in the future.
"I am an impassioned Geographer and hope that my enthusiasm for the subject encourages my students to be both engaged and excited by the learning opportunities the subject can bring."
