I was the first in my family to go to university, and I know that if I can succeed, then so can every other child. On graduating from Edinburgh Napier University, I started my career as a trainee Accountant before moving south on becoming qualified. I have worked for a number of Humber Bank companies and still have strong business connections locally. After 17 years working in industry I consciously made the decision to become an educator as I wanted the opportunity to help improve the life chances of young people.

Ormiston Maritime is at the heart of a very special community for me, as it is where my wife grew up and where many of our family still live. I am committed to ensuring that Ormiston Maritime is an Academy the whole community is proud of and somewhere that instils the highest aspirations in our students.
