As a Pastoral Leader and Boarding Housemaster within some fantastic Independent Schools in the UK, I have demonstrated a passion for enhancing care and opportunities within boarding communities. As a family, our sense of adventure led us to the UAE where we have resided since 2010. We love to travel, meet new people and experience as much of the world as possible. Anna, my wife, is a Nurse and former Intensive Care Sister and together we enjoy an incredibly active lifestyle with our two sons, Harry and Oliver. Sport is very much my passion where I previously competed in Athletics at national level and worked as a Director of Sport across a number of high performing schools. Swimming, Rugby, Running, Hiking, Cycling, Skiing, Scuba Diving and Golf are my most regular sporting pastimes.
As a teacher here in Dubai. My desire to help, support and develop others led to my being approached by a multi-national education group to coordinate and oversee the professional learning networks for teachers across all curriculum areas; increasing collaboration and training opportunities to enhance educational outcomes for students. I am a firm believer in life-long learning and completed my Masters in Education in 2015. I very much look forward to continuing my learning journey at SISD.
