I'm an educator and a free-thinker (atheist) with a background in Sociology and Cultural Studies. Originally from Manchester in the UK, I now teach at Guangdong University of Foreign Studies in Guangzhou, China. In my spare time, I like to learn Chinese (Mandarin) and keep fit. I like watching films (though I'm often disappointed by contemporary cinema). I am also passionate about sports, particularly football, and I'm a life-long Manchester United fan.
