After growing up in a boarding school in the South West of England, I went on to study for a BA in Education and a Masters in Creative Writing at the University of Cambridge. After graduating, I stayed on at the University for two further years and worked for Homerton College, before moving to work with the EF Academy marketing team in Zurich. I’m especially interested in philosophy, the sociology of education, and the psychology of learning.
