About Me


I believe everyone has a story that needs to be told.
I am a teacher. I have a passion to teach ESL globally to anyone who wants to learn.
Overall my personal philosophy is :
"Do Justice, Love Mercy, and Walk Humbly"


Before I went to college to be a teacher I went to college to be an opera singer. So naturally I love music, I also play, flute and bassoon, and occasionally the guitar. I'm also a songwriter and have been writing songs since I was 13. I love to travel and meet new people. I love taking photos and exploring new places. I love boxing and I love learning languages.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm pretty eclectic when it comes to music. I like everything from Ani Difranco, to Taylor Swift and all that's in between.
Some of my favorite movies are : Bella, Julie and Julia, 10 Things I Hate About You, Eat Pray Love, State of Play, The Tourist, Crazy Stupid Love, Contagion, The Life of David Gale, and Saved!

I am a consummate reader so choosing a favorite book is hard, but a few are: Midnight in The Garden of Good and Evil, Bergdorf Blondes, Eat Pray Love, The , The pen and the tablet, Kitchen Confidential, The Sharper Your Knife the Less you Cry, Hamlet, Othello and Captivating.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Studying Fine Art in Venice. Since I am half Italian it almost felt like a homecoming. It was amazing to rediscover my roots!

Teach, Learn, Share

I enjoy meeting open minded, honest people who are willing to learn from the world and around them. People who stand up for what they believe in, never say never, and are always willing to go on an adventure!
