About James


Bio

I'm a retired self-employed man with a degree in psychology....retired from operating a Montessori preschool, running a photography business, and operating a newspaper agency. Now I cut and split wood, work on helping my wife publish her blog about China, and look for ways to stay active mentally and physically. I'm well-read, always learning, and have just returned from a year of teaching English, with my wife, in China. Both my wife and I are avid travelers, having been to Africa, Ru...

I'm a retired self-employed man with a degree in psychology....retired from operating a Montessori preschool, running a photography business, and operating a newspaper agency. Now I cut and split wood, work on helping my wife publish her blog about China, and look for ways to stay active mentally and physically.

I'm well-read, always learning, and have just returned from a year of teaching English, with my wife, in China. Both my wife and I are avid travelers, having been to Africa, Russia and Uzbekistan, Greece, Peru and across to Brazil by motorcycle, hiked half of the Appalachian Trail, and motorcycled twice across the USA.

I plan for this to be mostly, if not entirely, an internet interaction, but will, at need, see students in person, if this is desired.

Using Blurb publishing software, I've designed several hundred pages to publish our blog about teaching in China. This involves taking the photos originally, writing the content for the blog, and putting together all the pages into an attractive and usable format.
