I am originally form Northern Ireland and have over ten years experience in secondary education. Upon leaving the UK in 2008, I have enjoyed seven years as an international educator, teaching IB Diploma Biology and MYP Science as well as coaching rugby and football. I am committed to empowering students, developing leaders and modelling a community of acceptance, democracy and respect for the environment, so that they can all be successful members of our global society. I am currently studying an MBA in International Education and look forward to completing my research. I am an avid sailor and enjoy exploring the waters and islands of Hong Kong. My wife and I recently celebrated the arrival of our first child and we are thoroughly enjoying the challenge of being new parents.
