Thank you for visiting my website – I hope students, parents, and other visitors will find it helpful. I am currently the academic director at Shenyang Transformation International School in Shenyang, China.


I first came to East Asia in 2009 to pursue my passion for international education. For three years, I served as the Head Instructor of the Chae Language Institute in South Korea. Wanting to improve my pedagogical skills, I returned to the United States to pursue a Masters of Science in Education at the University of Pennsylvania. I specialized in intercultural education.


After completing my degree, I served as the Director of Studies for an ACT-GAC Center and as the Director of Teachers at Northeast Yucai School, both in Shenyang. I was later a founding director of the HuZ International School.


Please feel free to look around and drop me a note — I would be delighted to hear from you!
