Overview

I've always had a passion for the nuances of language. I am currently in the second semester of a Master's Program in Newcastle, UK: MA Cross-cultural Communication and Applied Linguistics. To date I have lived in five countries: the U.S., Japan, Germany, Switzerland, and England. I also have a TESOL certification and some proficiency in German. In my free time I compose stories and poetry.

My goals as a writer are to pique the curiosity of the reader, enlighten them and inspire them.
