Born in London, I started dancing soon after leaving school, joining classes run by the RSCDS London Branch.
Attending St Andrews in 1983 I started the process of teacher training and whilst there, met my future wife, Christine, who was visiting from Australia.
In 1989 we emigrated to Perth, Western Australia where I have taught all levels of class from beginners to advanced technique. I have also taught at a Hamilton summer school and at winter schools in Western Australia and Victoria as well as weekends in Cairns and Melbourne.
When not dancing and teaching, I enjoy devising dances for friends and fellow dancers to commemorate special occasions and have been lucky enough to have several accepted for publication by the RSCDS.
