About

I’m currently based in Seoul, South Korea, teaching English through the EPIK program and getting reimmersed in making art while continuing to keep up my relatively new hobby of rock climbing.

I graduated from the University of South Florida with a BA in Language Education and a BA in Spanish. I had a job teaching Spanish at an affluent high school in the U.S. for two years and then decided to cross the Atlantic for the first time to teach English in Spain for a year.

Behind the Desk

I spent my first year in Spain teaching in a state run language school for teens and adults and elementary school in Cuellar, Segovia, Spain, an hour or so from Madrid. After living  the small town experience I requested  placement in Andalucia.

My Second year my contract sent me to teach at CIEP El Algarobillo in Valencina de la Concepcion. it’s true, “Sevilla has a special color”.

In September 2012 I met up with a friend, Megan and MAD. We packed  our suitcases  and  with her huge dog into a rental car and made our way down to Sevilla.

I traveled Peru, Ecuador and Colombia during May and June of 2013 then I returned home again for a quick visit. Always on the move, I flew to Los Angeles, California to visit friends and family and road tripped up to Canada, ending the summer flying back to Sevilla to begin my third year in Spain.

With my third and final, allowable, year as an Auxiliar in Spain over, I had to return to the USA. I went  up to Wisconsin and Illinois to visit friends and took  a road trip stopping in, Florida, Georgia,  Alabama,  Tennessee and finally home again. Then on August 17th 2014 I boarded  a flight to South Korea to teach English in the EPIK Program, which brings you back to the top.
