My Story

When I was 12 years old in Doncaster, in the mistaken belief it would win me kudos from my peer group, I jumped off of the roof of a toilet block, injuring all four of my limbs. I am now a specialist teacher in East London, educating children about the Icarus myth. Funny how things come full circle, isn't it?

In September 2019, I launched OtherWise Education, as a way of working creatively for myself, in partnership with my network of local schools. I have a range of projects. Many of them began in Newham and other East London boroughs.

I work for myself, nudging primary school kids to write poetry, explore forests and to play around intellectually with Greek mythology. I am also a successful teacher on the Outschool platform, and I teach mythology to students across the world in my classes. You can see my Outschool stuff here.

I worked with lots of schools in the past two years, including these gems.


  • Elmhurst Primary School, Newham

  • Vicarage Primary School, Newham

  • Gallions Primary School, Newham

  • Nelson Primary School, Newham

  • Kensington Primary School, Newham

  • Glade Primary School, Redbridge

  • Manor Junior School, Barking and Dagenham

  • Eastbrook Primary Academy, Barking and Dagenham

  • Trinity Academy Akroydon, Halifax

  • Hounslow Education Partnership


  • Shiv Nadar School, Noida, India

  • Shiv Nadar School, Faridabad, India

  • Shiv Nadar School, Gurgaon, India

  • Shiv Nadar School, Chennai, India

I am also a children's author, and I am published with HarperCollins and Oxford University Press.

My books are largely about myths but I like writing about all sorts of nonsense.


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
