I love the mixture of academic study and practical activities. The opportunity to be in both the classroom and enjoying the outdoors is awesome!

The outdoors is all about personal transformation, sharing the journey with others. 

Tell us about your teaching philosophy?

For me, education is about choice. At the end of their time with Wintec, I want students to feel in control of their destiny – inspired about where they are going to next.
