I am originally from San Jose, California in the United States. I received my BA in English Literature and Language Arts from Humboldt State University and my MATESOL from Seattle University. I have taught English to students at a variety of levels and from a number of L1 backgrounds both in the United States and here in Japan.
My research interests include cross-cultural communication, extensive listening, and Project-Based Learning.
Here is a photo of my work space. It contains all of the things I love: Books, music, and coffee.
