I’m a teacher and teacher trainer at University of Westminster, in central London. I’m also – along with Andrew Walkley – the co-author of two five-level General English series, OUTCOMES and INNOVATIONS, both of which are published by National Geographic Learning. I’ve been teaching since 1993, when I did my CTEFLA at Westminster College. I then spent several years working in Jakarta, Indonesia, before doing my DTEFLA at Hammersmith and West London College and my MA TESOL at the Institute of Education. As a young writer, I was lucky enough to be mentored by Michael Lewis and Jimmie Hill, the men behind The Lexical Approach, a book which has had a profound impact on my career and my life in general!
In addition to all of this, I’m the proud father of two wonderful children, a life-long supporter of Arsenal Football Club and a borderline obsessive collector of old 60s vinyl records. I’m lucky enough to get to travel all over the world for work, but am also lucky to call Harringay in north London home.
