I am originally from Liverpool in the UK, and studied Business and Leisure management at Manchester University, before completing my post-graduate in Education at the University in Bedford. I have had the pleasure of teaching both Business and Physical Education at GCSE, IGCSE, IB and A Level for almost 20 years. I joined TBS four years ago, after spending almost nine years in Asia, teaching Business Studies and Physical Education both at the British School in Tokyo, where I founded the Business Studies department and SJI International, Singapore. In my role as the IBDP Coordinator I am constantly amazed at how the IB Diploma shapes and forms students at TBS into students for the future. The academic rigour of the course, twinned with the holistic nature of CAS, TOK and EE allows students to develop a multitude of skills that they will continue to develop far beyond their university years.
In the classroom, I am passionate about learning and really like that Business Studies allows students to look at real-life situations from a variety of perspectives. Outside of the classroom, my wife Saki and I have a growing family. Jacob our four-year-old is at the Dab campus and loves every minute that he is there. We are currently awaiting the arrival of our second and I am sure they will keep us both very busy in the years to come. I have always been passionate about sport and as a keen footballer and skier it will be great to be a little closer to both my boyhood football club (Everton FC) and the mountains (with hopefully endless amounts of fresh powder during the winter).
