Teacher (Resistant Materials) / Learning Manager (Year 8)
Before becoming a teacher I worked in industry making Submarines and Tanks. Since I started to teach I’ve taught all aspect of Design & Technology but I have to admit that Resistant Materials is my favourite. The satisfaction of watching something going from a pile of material to a great product is brilliant.
My Favourite Products.
Alessi Juicy Salif Citrus-Squeezer
Truly iconic object and symbol not only of Philippe Starck but of Alessi itself, this citrus squeezer – as revolutionary as it is surprisingly functional. It was sketched in its essentials by Starck during a holiday by the sea in Italy, on a pizzeria napkin.
The Yamaha XLT800 Jet Ski
There isn’t many way to describe it. I say that it is brilliant and it gives Smiles for miles. It might not be the most powerful but it will still happily fly across the waves at 50 mph, that’s more than fast enough for me.
My thought provoking quote to those who’ve read down this far;
In the end, we just regretthe chances that we didn’t take.
