With a Masters degree in Fine Arts and 25+ years experience in martial arts and teaching, I've done everything from teach university classes (dance, painting and drawing, kung fu and Tai Chi) to own and run a martial arts business. I have written extensively on various topics, been interviewed on radio and television, have spent numerous years abroad (both in Europe and South America), toured with a dance ensemble, and speak Portuguese fluently. I have also studied the human body extensively and have certified in various alternative healing modalities including Fa Kung Chi Kung healing and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy.
This broad experience has tempered my approach to education and gives me the capacity to shift gears and draw from numerous resources to aid the learning process. I have been teaching and public speaking in some capacity for the past 15 years look forward to continuing that journey.
I frankly believe in everyone's capacity to succeed regardless of whether or not they find something difficult. I love learning and my approach is often to come at things in unexpected ways so that the learning experience becomes more a process of discovery than just jumping through hoops.
