After graduating from a Management degree in London, Gary started work in the Financial Services industry working at Dow Jones Newswires International, firstly as a Newsroom Assistant/Copy Editor and then as a Petroleum Products Reporter.

Before joining the teaching profession Gary was fortunate enough to travel to Australia and New Zealand and then later to explore South East Asia, culminating in a very rewarding experience as a volunteer English teacher working in Thailand at local primary schools and an orphanage in Khao Lak. Since becoming a teacher Gary has worked in a range of workplace environments, from inner-city state primary and secondary schools to independent international schools.
