Life before Stowe

I have worked overseas as a translator for Papal documents alongside the Pope’s Latinist at the Vatican in Rome, a writer in New York and in Paris for Christian Dior.

What do you enjoy most about your subject?

Mythology and epic poetry and the stories within them.

What do you enjoy most about Stowe?

The community spirit, the magnificent gardens and the tasty snacks.

What is your favourite lesson?

Whenever pupils realise how much Latin and Greek influence their daily lives, and are therefore not dead languages.

What do others say about you?

Ask them and let me know…

Other hats

I would like to think The Sorting Hat would place me in Gryffindor but I would probably end up in Ravenclaw.


My family, dogs, languages, travelling, the sun, mountain walking, skiing and singing.
