About Me
Hi - I've been teaching in the integrated liberal arts tradition for over 20 years.

Words, in particular, fascinate me.

I've worked with them as a poet - in 2007 I was poet-in-residence at the first Edinburgh Food Festival and was invited back to be poet-in-residence at the Pleasance Dome the following year.

I've worked with them as a storyteller, writing and producing shows combining traditional storytelling and performance poetry which have been performed in Edinburgh and London, the most recent being “Under The Arabian Moon”, a retelling of stories from The Arabian Nights at The Roundhouse in 2009.

I've worked with them as an author and educationalist. I'm co-author of 'Odyssey: Dynamic Learning System': A simple, innovative CCNC-licensed educational intervention with inspiration hard-wired in it due to be published in late 2014 by Liberalis Books.

I've worked with them as an educator, tutor, and coach.

It's been a long and interesting journey so far.

I've studied voice with The British Voice Association and at Princeton University. I hold a Master’s Degree in the History of Design and Material Culture of the Renaissance from the Royal College of Art, and a graduate diploma from the Trinity College of Music in London. I am a City and Guilds Adult and Further Education Qualified Trainer, a Teaching Associate at The Negotiation Lab, specialising in effective communication techniques for negotiation, and am currently exploring the links between mathematics, language and logic with Professor George Spencer-Brown.

I've published several articles in academic journals and trade magazines on the subject of effective communication and classical liberal arts education, the most recent being 'Integration and the liberal arts: a historical
overview, On the Horizon, Vol 22, No 1, 2014, pp 46–56. I've also been interviewed on BBC Breakfast television as an expert in the subject of effective communication.

In 2012, I co-hosted ‘The Talking Shop’, a series of radio shows with Giles Abbott, one of the UK's leading professional storytellers about different aspects of storytelling.

I hold the position of publisher for Liberalis Books, the classical educational imprint of John Hunt Publishing.

I'm fluent in five languages (English, French, Italian, Russian and Arabic).
