SON, HUSBAND, FRIEND

Firstly, let me address the elephant in the room - yes, this website has my name and is all about me! It's so everything needed to be known about me is all on one place!


I'm an extrovert but there are so many strings to my bow that I lose track of how people know me, and with all the variety of activities I do, I thought it best to gather them all into one website. For more info, click any topic below:

 

 

  • TEACHER

I've been a teacher for 16 years. Enough is enough. This country and its various governments are treating education as a machine rather than an endeavour. Thus I have become a...


  • TUTOR

Working 1-2-1, I can help students overcome individual issues, help them understand information in a non-threatening environment and further their knowledge in many subjects. Maths, Media Studies, English and all KS2&3 subjects. This is mirrored in me being a...


  • POET

Words have power. They can inspire and they can heal. They can hurt and they can motivate to act. I'm currently assisting the Bard of Northampton and taking part in many opn-mic evenings to hone my craft. Ultimately I would like to be published.


  • PHOTOGRAPHER

I was the head of Photography in a school. I felt a fraud, learning how to use the cameras only a few lessons before teaching them. But I 'have an eye' - I can see an image. Some of them are shown on this website. Look and enjoy and comment and criiticise. Help me get better!


  • LARPER

Live Action Role Play -er ? I imagine I'm other people and characters. For fun. With many people, with a few. In different settings. I even run my own horror LARP: AHE Games.


  • SON

Birds. Bees. I have two wonderful parents who support me from their own unique perspectives in the world. I imagine they'll be very interested in this site. It's partly my way of thanking them for their support and partly a lazy way for them to keep tabs on me as I move away from social media.


  • HUSBAND

I'm married. To a fantastic human being and this relationship and is discussed more on my more personal pages here...


  • FRIEND

Kahlil Gibran said it better, but without my friends, I wouldn't be here. I'm thankful for every one in my life and hope to continue to be friends in the future! Here is a current update on what's happening in my life
