I am an English language and literature teacher, yearbook advisor and drama co-ordinator at Marymount Secondary School in Hong Kong.
I am particularly interested in the integration of literature and drama into ESL teaching and in the use of web 2.0 technologies for student-centred learning.
I was born in Torquay in 1972 and grew up in Paignton, Devon. I studied at Westlands Bilateral School in Torquay and then at Christ's College, Cambridge.
In 2006 I co-wrote and directed a musical, Orpheus, written in collaboration with a colleague as a fund-raising project for Marymount. I have also written a sequence of short comic plays in rhyming couplets based on four Shakespeare tragedies, with the title Shakespeare's Shorts. More recently, I directed a production of
Much Ado About Nothing. I am currently directing a production of Hamlet.
