Cooking teacher

I was fortunate to get a teaching position at MIS in 2016 and I really enjoy teaching here. I like working with committed, positive teachers and teaching students who are willing to give things a go. So, it’s really no wonder I’m loving it here because this school has plenty of people just like that. I managed to secure my dream job when I became the cooking teacher in 2019. Happy days!

I live overlooking Wellington Harbour in Days Bay so it’s a bit of a commute to get to MIS but definitely worth it. I live with my lovely wife Claire and our cute dog Otis.

I love spending time with my 3 adult children and 2 grandchildren and I’m very proud of them all. My interests include cooking, sport and most things horsey.
