Born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, I attended high school at Boston Latin School, received my Bachelor's degree from Brown University (Providence, Rhode Island) and my Master's in Business Administration degree from McGill University (Montreal, Quebec, Canada). I lived four years in Mexico City, Mexico where I taught English as a Foreign Language to students and business professionals. I received my Certificate in "Teaching English as a Second Language" from the University of California, Irvine in June, 2013 and I have been teaching English as a Second Language(ESL) to international students at Kaplan International College and at AOI College of Languages, both in Irvine, California, for the past year.
