Educator, Author & Public Speaker

Orlando, FL

I currently work as a Senior English Teacher for 51Talk American Academy.  I teach children in primary school the English language in all areas of China through video software.  I also spent time teaching college level Thai students the English language on the ground in Bangkok, Thailand.  Who would have thought, as a person who stutters, my life’s work would become about teaching others to speak and communicate?!  Well, it has.  I took an unorthodox approach and built my life on my “weaknesses” as opposed to my strengths. Challenge and growth through this route have been exhilarating.  Its effects are becoming liberating in these more recent stages of my life.  I know many people who stutter who have full lives, challenging speaking careers, and live as if no limitation exists.
