I was born in Edinburgh, Scotland but moved south to study at Newcastle University where I graduated with a degree in Biomedical Sciences. I taught for three years in Edinburgh before moving to teach for four further years in Wimbledon where I have also been Head of Year 8. Outside of school I enjoy playing football and hockey and I also coach both of these sports in my present school. I enjoy travelling and have travelled across Asia and central and North America. I have also visited 22 U.S. States so I’m hoping to tick a few more off the list living in Chicago.
