2021 is my 10th year in Ho Chi Minh City and working at BIS HCMC. I have learnt and grown so much whilst teaching at the school from my colleagues and my students and look forward to this continuing in the future. During the last 10 years I have trained with Juilliard and Gecko and Splendid as well as host of other Theatre companies that have enriched my teaching practice. I have also seen hundreds of Drama students leave to pursue their futures at top universities around the world. My latest challenge at BIS HCMC is introducing a Drama program to our Junior and Early Years campuses.
Outside of school life I have been involved with a number of theatre companies within the city as an actor and practitioner. I have also until recently enjoyed traveling around vietnam and learning about the rich and diverse cultures of the different regions.
