About Me

I’ve been a teacher, a headteacher, a writer of books, a jack of all trades, a master of nothing.

I was born in south Wales and for many years worked on a ‘dirty noise opera’ about the Welsh mystic Arthur Machen. It’s called ‘From Ages to Ages’. It has taken ages. I performed a tiny, solo version of it at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018. This was ‘A Robinson Crusoe of the Soul’. I may or may not go on to produce other blithely chaotic performances.

I’ve used the form of ‘A Robinson Crusoe of the Soul’ to produce a series of podcasts ‘These Weird Isles’.  After the debacle that is Brexit I wanted to find a way to like my country again. This was the result.

Other music I’ve written is here. Some odd short stories are here.

I’ve squeezed almost everything I know about teaching into The Babbulary.  It’s an approach to learning that education policy makers often refuse to accept. Read more about it here.
