Don has come from a strong business and teaching background. He previously taught various disciplines across Vietnam, Thailand, Laos and Australia for over two years after studying English Literature at Brighton University.
Don previously owned a Baby Ballet franchise which covered Wimbledon, Epsom and New Malden. Don had bought the franchise with only 20 students and within a year grew the business to an outstanding figure of over 150 students.
Previous to owning a Baby Ballet franchise, Don headed up accounts across Europe and Asia as a Managed Services Consultant within Telecoms. He managed a number of networks, technical support engineers and maintained all contracts.
Don believes passionately in the Performing Arts, what it stands for and how it can bring out the very best in oneself. The dedication, commitment, hard work and creativity learned when being involved in various industries are life long skills that he is proud and honoured to be able to instill in his students.
Don is thrilled to be part of the success of Stagecoach Cheam and Worcester Park, helping children develop their creativity, expression and confidence through the performing arts, as well as running Stagecoach New Malden.
