what makes me tick

I believe, like Ralph Ellison, that “Education is all a matter of building bridges.”

That belief has taken me to Madrid where I taught English as a Second Language to Sri Lanka where I mentored Peace Corps volunteers to El Salvador where I trained teachers and to 25 other countries for a wide variety of training, instructional design and staff development projects.

As a writer I specialize in cultural studies, education, and nonprofit communications.
