I have been teaching English at UW-Madison since 2000 and currently serve as the Interim Director of the ESL Program. I teach a number of subjects and courses here including writing, reading, and pronunciation and academic skills preparation. Additionally, I am involved with teacher training for international teaching assistants as well as undergraduate and graduate students who are pursuing a TESOL teaching certificate. I am currently part of a collaborative academic writing project between UW-Madison and the Universidad Tecnológica in Uruguay. In the past I have also worked as a teacher trainer with the Fulbright-Hays Program, the National African Languages Resource Center, and the Gyeonggi-do Institute for Foreign Language Education in Korea. When I’m not teaching, I like to spend time traveling with my wife and playing sports with my sons or pursuing my other passion in life: music. I regularly perform, record, and tour with a Chicago based blues group called the Cash Box Kings. I look forward to teaching you and helping you pursue your academic goals.
