Hello and nice to meet you! I was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida ? a city in the southeastern United States. I attended the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida where I studied International Relations and Political Science and later earned my Masters in Applied Linguistics from the University of Leicester. I first came to Japan in 2007 with the JET Program and lived in Gifu for several years. Since then I have taught English at schools and companies in Kyoto, Kobe, Osaka, and now at CUBE. I hope that you find our program at CUBE interesting and enlightening, and I look forward to seeing you on our beautiful campus.
My research interests include Intercultural Communication, Critical Pedagogy, Language Planning and Policy, Multicultural Education, and Philosophy of Education.
English is a way for you to explore the entire world.
