Stephen joins ISNS as the MYP Design & Technology Teacher. Stephen is from Ireland and graduated from Limerick School of Art & Design with a BA in Fashion Design. After graduation he trained alongside the likes of British Designer Alexander McQueen and Irish handbag designer Pauric Sweeney. He has also worked a number of years with high street fashion brands such as Brooks Brothers New York, Religion Clothing London and River Island. After taking a year off in 2007 to travel and work in Canada Stephen experienced a new culture and way of life that put him on the path of teaching.

Stephen is very excited to be part of the Art & Design Department at ISNS working alongside like-minded and experienced educational professionals. He hopes his contribution to the team will help ISNS grow and develop as being the top IB school in Shenzhen.
