About Me

This website is about 3 passions of mine; Astronomy, Teaching and Web Design. I have taught at John Cabot Academy for over 8 years and now work as the Creative Director for Learning at Imagine Education.

My favorite observations have been Hale Bopp Comet, the Transit of Venus and the Lunar Eclipse of 2007. My ambition is to see a Total Solar Eclipse.
