About Me

CURRENT MISSION

:)

ABOUT ME

I'm an ESL/TEFL/TESOL/CTBE/etc. instructor from California with experience in Taiwan. In that are my unconcealed fascinations, language and travel. I'm working hard––however terribly––at reversing my unilingual upbringing, sharing what I can, eating, listening. I enjoy the quiet distractions, the cheap museums and local coffee shops and walking commutes and music from computer speakers shared with open and accepting hosts and surfers.
