I am from Deer Park and Oakdale, Long Island. Graduated from SUNY New Paltz in 1988 and St. Michael's College in 2003. I worked in the former Czechoslovakia, Korea, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Nicaragua, Albania, the UAE, Qatar and Saudi Arabia teaching ESL to mainly tertiary level students and adults, but also some younger learners as well. I enjoy travelling, collecting antiques, cooking, photography, the gym, music and riding water buffaloes when I am in SE Asia.
