I am assistant principal at Surbiton High School, where I lead on digital strategy and teach modern foreign languages. My main interests are pedagogy, technology and how they can combine to produce great teaching and learning. I am a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and I speak regularly at conferences and other events focused on professional development. Most notably, I have been a guest speaker at the HMC Annual Conference, The Telegraph Festival of Education, ResearchED, BETT and the Education Show.
In addition, I am a contributor to the TES and my work has also featured in The Guardian. I have co-written a book titled Educate 1-to-1: The secret to successful planning, implementing and sustaining change through mobile learning in schools.
I am currently writing a book for Bloomsbury Publishing Plc provisionally titled Using technology in the classroom.
I am an enthusiastic amateur photographer trying to get to grips with aperture widths, focal lengths and ISO settings. I am a keen but rather average guitar player. I am slightly – but only slightly – more accomplished on the bass. And I really enjoy cookery, from traditional good old English food to anything with chorizo in it. Unlike photography, bass or guitar playing, I’m actually quite good at cooking.
I am also a coffee snob, a tea heathen and a cat person.
