I joined Magdalen in 2001; prior to that I worked in Cambridge, firstly in St. Catharine’s College and later in Jesus College.

Role in the College

Principally, I’m responsible for the management of all the domestic operations in the College. I lead a team of almost 100 staff; from gardens to catering, housekeeping to IT, Porters’ lodge to maintenance, to make Magdalen a great place to study, live, and visit. I am also treasurer for the combined clubs and help the various student sports clubs and societies with grants and general support.
