I am a high school teacher of economics. I grew up in Ireland and graduated with an honours degree in Economics/Business Education from Manchester Metropolitan University. From there I took up my first teaching post at Epsom College in London where I taught A-Level Economics for three years. I started teaching Economics at King’s College Auckland in June 1991 and now Head of the Economics Department. We teach both the NCEA Economics course (NZ qualification) and the Cambridge International A-Level course (CIE) of which the latter I am an A-Level examiner. I also teach CIE AS & A Level Psychology. Keen on sport especially hockey, rowing and football – an avid supporter of Real Mallorca in the Spanish La Liga.
