I have a teaching qualification from London Metropolitan University from 2006. I also have a BSc in Biology from King’s College University of London and a Msc in Marine and Fisheries Science from Aberdeen University.
I started my teaching career in 2006 as a science teacher in Hertfordshire, where I became an A Level biology teacher and taught general science. I worked in High Schools in Buckinghamshire and outer London. I have held several other positions including Head of Year, elected Staff Governor and Head of Biology
In 2017 I met my wife who lived in the USA. We got married on the first day of COVID Lockdown in 2020 in a hastily (1 day) arranged marriage in Oakland, California. We then moved to Charlotte in 2021. People who know me would describe me as very easy going, calm, and generous with a love of nature and the beauty that surrounds us. I have lived in several countries, including Australia and Norway, where I was a researcher in the Aquaculture industry. I have travelled extensively all over the world with a lot of time spent in India and South East Asia. I love sports but, due to injuries, this is now confined to hours on TV and some live sports events.
I was lucky enough to be offered a temporary position at BISC in August 2021. I enjoyed my time with the students and staff - especially how students are taught and respected as individuals. During the time I was there, I was impressed with how warm and friendly all the staff were. When I was approached to join BISC for this academic year, I had no hesitation. I look forward to working with the whole community and learning from them.
