I grew up in Auckland, New Zealand. I received my BA in Linguistics & Philosophy at the University of Auckland, and my MA in Applied Linguistics from the University of Birmingham in the UK. I have lived in Japan since 2011, and I find new and interesting things to learn and places to visit. I have enjoyed teaching all ages from elementary school to university.
My favourite place is sitting on top of a mountain. The view is made all the more beautiful by the effort it took to get there.
