I studied Physics, English Literature and Philosophy, in this order, but got swept away by the latter and pursued this passion to PhD level. I have worked in many fields - catering, theatre etc. - but have worked as an Educator for twenty years. I have been in leadership roles since 2012.
Though I may, understandably, be mistaken for Jason Bourne occasionally, my expertise is in different areas. I'm a critical and creative thinker, able to communicate with passion, lucidity, and enthusiasm. My key areas of knowledge are Philosophy, English and Religious Studies. I have a good knowledge of the Arts, and am a qualified Mindfulness trainer. I'm passionate about the importance of Education, and of Mindfulness meditation in schools.
Apart from the woman I love, and have been graced enough to be loved by for over twenty years, I have a number of passions. Since childhood I have been fascinated by Horror, the Uncanny and the Fantastical in literature, film and the Arts generally. I'm a film muso, a book-enamorato, and avid painting-looker. I have a deep love of the mystery and wonder of Magic, particularly Mentalism. My skills may not be those of Derren Brown but I'm a 'Gentleman Amateur' and a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians.
