Welcome! Here you can find a collection of short articles on living and working abroad, teaching and lesson plans for ESL and EFL classrooms, living well on a budget, curated reading lists and book reviews, and finally, in hopes of bringing back or reinvigorating family dinners, some topics ripe for dinner table discussion!

I have written on travel, teaching, literature, and the globalization of the English language, and am currently working on a Turkish translation of Tamora Pierce's 'Alanna'. You can read some of my book reviews for the London School of Economics by following the link to the right.

If you would like to hire me as your editor or copy-editor, please follow the link to my website to see what I offer.

My blog, linked to the right, chronicals my adventures in gainful unemployment and the twists and turns of the doctoral application process. FUN.
