Professional: I have been involved in education one-way-or-another since graduating university in 1995. During my career I have taught English at language schools and universities in South Korea, taught Math and ICT courses at international schools in Japan, and started my own IT consulting business in Romania.
Personal: In a nutshell, I was born into a wonderful family, grew up, graduated high school, and started moving around. I attended Penn State for four and a half years and graduated with a degree in secondary education. Soon after, I moved to South Korea for two years, moved back to the US to attend West Chester University and graduated with a Master's degree in TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language).
Armed with my fancy new degree, I moved back to Korea where I taught at Sungshin Women's University for three years. In the meantime, I began a relationship with my lovely Japanese wife, who somehow convinced me to move to Japan; we got married the next day and I began working at an international school in Saitama. I then worked at another international school until 2007, when we began a two-year adventure in Bucharest, Romania. We returned to Japan in 2009 where we now reside, work, and play.
