I am happiest when I am exploring new places. I prefer places of natural beauty and cities with historical
neighborhoods. In 1980 I started teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages as a Peace Corps volunteer in Thailand. Upon returning to the USA I continued teaching TESOL in New York City and New Rochelle. Running is part of my daily routine and I use my bicycle to get to work and travel locally. Reading, writing, thinking and meditating are key aspects of my waking hours.
