Originally from Hertford, Herts, I have been working in education for over 25 years, predominantly in Primary schools, as a class teacher, subject leader, Governor and Deputy Headteacher, mainly in Wirral but also in Sefton, Coventry and Hertfordshire. I also spent over 2 years as Advisory Teacher for Humanities in Wirral. I have considerable classroom and management experience, focussing on curriculum design, co-ordinating whole school projects and specialising in History, Geography and RE.

Currently I am fortunate enough to be able to combine my lifelong love of history and geography by co-ordinating the education arm of Big Heritage alongside my other part-time roles as a Global Education officer for CDEC – Developing Global Learning in Chester, and as an Interpretative Assistant at Quarry Bank Mill, Styal for the National Trust.

In my spare time I play in a band, enjoy reading and spending time with my wife and our children.

Favourite Historic Site: Hadrian’s Wall

I love history because: learning from the past helps us to understand the present and hopefully influence the future

Interesting facts: I learnt to play the saxophone inherited from my father…… I am half Australian, have dual nationality, citizenship and two passports….. one of my sons is studying Russian at University whilst the other is studying German and Russian!
