First and foremost, thank you for visiting my website.  I am an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) teacher currently living in Doha, Qatar. I am also happily married (see below) to a beautiful wife. Courtesy of my spouse, I also have a wonderful step-daughter, and a son who was born in October of 2013.

I have a great desire to explore the world and experience new cultures.  Since 1999 I have ventured to more than 35 states, all seven continents and 45 countries. Traveling, and teaching are my two biggest passions, and I am fortunate to do both. From 2007 to 2011, I had the great privilege of teaching EFL and English courses in South Korea and China.

I hold a master’s degree in Professional Writing, and a second MA with 18 graduate hours in both Reading Education and English. I also hold a bachelor’s degree in Communications, and a TEFL certificate. I’m currently working on earning 18 graduate hours in Communications. Later this year I will commence work on a doctoral program focused on Educational Leadership from Southwestern College.

I love learning,  hiking, history, kayaking, photography, and keeping up with current events.

This website is designed to be a portfolio of my work, and a place for me to discuss my overseas experiences.  I welcome any comments you may have.
