Bio

I took second-year Mandarin at UC Santa Cruz, and then went to Beijing for a year on their exchange program. I continued study of Chinese language and literature for two years at Liaoning Univeristy. I first applied my Chinese language skills as a lexicographer, then as a translator, and now as an interpreter. I have also been a teacher and tutor of Mandarin. I take part in events with the native Chinese community to build language skills.

I took second-year Mandarin at UC Santa Cruz, and then went to Beijing for a year on their exchange program. I continued study of Chinese language and literature for two years at Liaoning Univeristy. I first applied my Chinese language skills as a lexicographer, then as a translator, and now as an interpreter. I have also been a teacher and tutor of Mandarin. I take part in events with the native Chinese community to build language skills.

I am a native English speaker. Having achieved professional competency in a foreign language, I understand the process of learning a new language. This made it easy for me to complete my certificate program in Teaching English as a Second Language at UCSD Extension.

Having taken private voice lessons for five years, I sing quite well, and can model vocal lines. As an active choral singer in San Diego for twenty-five years, I have developed good reading skills.

Lately I have been playing with the music committee of the Unitarian Universalist Men's Fellowship.

Get off to a good start with your study of Mandarin. Whether you are studying independently or taking a course, I will help you become more competent.

I am currently a member of the music committee of the Unitarian Universalist Men's Fellowship. In this capacity I work with other men to select and perform music for semi-annual retreat weekends for men. I am a past winner of the Andrew Rankine Scholarship for Scottish dance music. In San Diego, I have taken lessons from symphony players Randy Brinton and Wanda Law. I have also taken lessons from Chris Vitas, of Keltic Karma. I was a member of a Scottish dance band for a number of years. In that capacity we provided live music for dances.
