    Hi there, I am the Technology Coordinator for our Hongqiao Main and Hongqiao ECE campuses and the head of our Upper School Design department. I am from Wales in the UK where I grew up in a small town called Cwmbran. I have a degree in Design and Technology from the University of Wales, where I specialized in Graphic Design, Systems & control and Resistant Materials. I have previously taught Graphic Design at schools in South Wales, Worcester and Shanghai. I have lived in the city for seven years with my wife Juliet, who teaches Upper School French and Spanish. We have a 2 year old son, Arthur who is loving the Nursery class at our ECE campus. We love Shanghai and consider it to be very much our home. We are really excited to be going in to our seventh year teaching in what I consider as the city’s best International school. I am a huge Rugby Union enthusiast and an experienced IRB certified coach and referee. This year I am really looking forward to seeing the SCIS Dragons take on many victories on the field and promoting the excellent sportsmanship that we have at our school. In our free time my family and I love traveling, hiking, keeping fit and socializing with the amazing SCIS community.
