I studied physics at university, with the original dream to become an astronaut.
After learning I was too tall to fit in a spacesuit, I got into education, inspired by my own experiences. Since qualifying, I have taken the opportunity each summer holiday to train other teachers in Uganda and Malaysia with an organisation called LRTT.
Personally, I have a love of the theatre and make a point of going every few months. Otherwise you'd find me on long country walks or in my grandfather's workshop.
