BIOGRAPHY & INTERESTS

Most of my life has been spent outdoors and on different adventures around the world. Whether it is road-tripping across Mozambique, Brazil and the States, trekking to Everest Base Camp, or snowcaving and backcountry skiing in Canada. I am a sports fanatic and was House Captain of Sport at Eton. Particular sport favourites are football, tennis, cricket, and skiing.

Meanwhile, I spend time reading up on economic development in undeveloped countries and emerging markets are interests that stem from travelling in Africa and Asia. These interests have been behind my attempts to set up affordable irrigation systems in developing countries, setting up businesses in Uganda, taking modules on Development Economics and Natural Resources and Environmental Economics, and my aspirations to work for a development bank or for global corporate banks with clear ESG strategies.

EXPERIENCE & APPROACH

While I specialise in Economics, Mathematics and French, I enjoy teaching a range of subjects. In my mentoring I draw on experiences from teaching entrepreneurs basic financial elements, teaching children skiing, motivating students as a Cadet Sergeant at school and as a team leader in Lourdes for the OMV. Due to this wide ranging mathematic and language skills, and ages, I am able to be adaptable to a variety of capabilities and developing confidence in individuals. I am motivated to ensure that my mentees do not suffer the lack of inspiration that I experience from a tutor when I was younger, and I believe that a balance of academic challenge and enjoyment will maximise academic and personal development.
