Having joined Oakham in 2013 as Head of German and then being appointed Head of Middle School, I was delighted to be appointed Deputy Head Co-Curricular. Following a career as a professional classical singer, I entered the teaching profession at the age of 30. As a former Head of German, Housemaster and Master in Charge of Rowing at King’s Ely, I feel well placed to be overseeing the whole school experience for all pupils. I am married to Kim, who is Housemistress of Rushebrookes House, and we live there with our family. I remain passionate about opera and German Lieder, and maintain a love for skiing and cooking.
