[Being updated]

I’ve been teaching in London in Prep Schools for the last 11 years. Before that I worked in IT research and knowledge management consultancy. In terms of academic background, my first degree was in Ancient Greek & Philosophy and my Masters was in Computer Science.

I get interested in things easily, but I’ve always been interested in learning in one shape or another.

For more traditional context …

My favourite quote for the moment

is this, from Robertson Davies:

Consistency is the virtue of tiny minds
