I am a PhD student studying English Language and Linguistics. Prior to coming to UW-Madison, I received an M.A. in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and I have taught academic English in Amman, Jordan as a U.S. Fulbright Fellow and in the U.S. I have also taught workplace English to adult immigrants. When not studying or teaching, I enjoy hiking along the lakes with my wife, son, and dog!
