Career Highlights

I’ve been teaching since 2001 when I joined the Peace Corps as an English teacher in the South Pacific. Since then I’ve travelled and taught Kazakh oil executives, Afghan high school students, Saudi royals, and Vietnamese video game champions! I started Alphabet Publishing, a small independent publishing company, as a self-publishing enterprise that quickly grew out of control. We specialize in creative and innovative language learning resources that are a bit outside the box. All our materials are 100% teacher-created, classroom tested, and student-approved!

It was one of my authors, Alice Savage, that introduced me to the power of drama to teach English. And I’ve never acted on stage, but in high school I did do the lights for many school plays, and loved it!
