My name is David Millake and I was born in Cardiff, which is located in South Wales in the United Kingdom. After completing my A-levels, I started a degree in Biochemistry at the University of Wales. I enjoyed the molecular biology component of my degree course so much that I decided to do a PhD in, what was then, a new and developing area of biotechnology. I spent my research time cloning and sequencing DNA and I published the first human sequence of a cytoskeletal protein called alpha-actinin. After the successful completion of my doctorate, I decided to do a PGCE in Chemistry at the University of Cambridge. I began my teaching career in England, working at two of the country’s leading independent schools: Brighton College and Oakham School. Having obtained sufficient teaching experience to teach internationally, I quickly left the United Kingdom and started my International teaching career in Kuwait, where I spent the next 17 years working as both a teacher and Head of Department of Chemistry. While in Kuwait, I married a Thai lady and we had a baby boy, Luke, and we have traveled together as a family since that time. We decided that it was time to leave Kuwait and move to the far east to be closer to our home in Rayong Thailand. I taught Chemistry at Dulwich College in Zhuhai, China and then moved to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam where I taught at the British International School. We wanted to stay in Thailand for some time so I moved to Bromsgrove International School in Bangkok. I am extremely pleased to now join HeadStart International School, and I will be joined by my 7 year old boy Luke who will start in Year 3 at the primary school. When I am not teaching Chemistry, I enjoy: traveling, music, art and politics.
