Originally from ‘the city of dreaming spires’ – Oxford – I have spent most of my life living in London. My career began when I realised how much I adore languages, which was when I was studying Japanese at school. From there I went on to study language teaching and travelled to Asia. I am an enormous fan of contemporary oriental culture and in particular Japanese anime and video games, I also taught in China for a time and speak Chinese as a second language. I have been at Malvern House for many years now and I’m always happy to have a chat, so please feel free to say ‘hello’ to me if you see me here!
