I was born in Dublin City, Ireland, and grew up in County Meath, which is close to Dublin.
I studied History and Geography as an undergraduate at Maynooth University and completed my Masters in Military History and Strategic Studies in Maynooth. From there, I completed my Higher Diploma in Education at UCD Dublin.
I started my teaching career in Spain, which was a stepping stone for me to come live and teach in Qatar, where I have spent the last five years.
I am very close to my two brothers, sister, and my mother.
My main interests are Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, keeping fit, eating healthily and having as little negative impact on the environment as possible.
My aim at Oryx is to continue to bring my very best teaching to each and every one of my students and to ignite their love for history and inspire them to flourish and reach their potential, not only as History students but as mature, responsible citizens.
