Concieved while my parents were on a round-the-world trip obviously started me off with a desire to move around and indeed I have.
A creative and expressive individual, I started my profession in graphic design and advertising consultancy, but soon realised that for travel and for international communication, practical communicability is a more key element for many people and cultures in this world of ours. So, after a a degree in English language and culture I did a CELTA and attained my masters in education to improve how I could teach people and improve their English language and communication skills.
I taught business English mostly by distance for some years while I did the major part of my itchy feet travelling as well as time teaching in some universities in different continents and realise the importance of comprehension and clear speech to benefit communication clarity.
I want to help people improve their capacity to communicate and speaking with clear pronunciation is an extremely advantageous way to start.
Cultural comprehension is another interest related to language in so many ways and one which more strongly influences progressive levels in language learning. It is also a topic I desire to continue my own theorietical and developmental analysis of.
In physical terms for me... I love my free time with my favourite place at the moment being immersed in the ocean bay here in the tropical pacific island home I currently find myself and swimming with the local wildlife.
