I grew up in north London, where I attended Sunday School at First Church of Christ, Scientist, Hendon, and I joined The Mother Church as a teenager. After graduating from Cambridge University with a master’s degree in engineering, I initially pursued a career as a pianist and song writer, while also tutoring in mathematics and later on teaching English as a foreign language.
One evening after graduating I sat down at my desk and thought deeply about what I really believed. Was God really my Father? Is man really spiritual? At length I decided that the answer to both questions was yes. Then something new happened — there was an illumination of my understanding. You might say that I felt the presence of the Holy Spirit.
The following year I attended Primary class in London, became a branch church member, and began taking practice cases on a part-time basis. In 2006 I moved south to Bournemouth where I continued my branch church membership. In 2010 I committed to the full-time healing practice and became listed in The Christian Science Journal.
My desire to make my practice more accessible to the public led me to open an office on the high street in 2013. Between 2015 and 2019 I served as one of the online teachers for The Mother Church Sunday School. In 2018 I was appointed Committee on Publication for South West England, and later that year I attended the Normal class and qualified as a teacher of Christian Science.
