Bio & CV

I am an Assistant Professor at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies and have worked for different media, tech companies, and educational institutions, including SMU, Middlebury College, and UC Davis, where I got my PhD.

My career as a professional writer started in the late 90’s and is now focused on teaching,  publishing, and promoting language learning projects, such as Recicle.org.

In the past, I have co-created an online Spanish textbook, an academic journal, and the first community of blogs dedicated to the learning and interchange of languages. Areas of professional interest and specialization include social entrepreneurship, language learning and technology, tandem learning, study abroad, cinema, and journalism. Below is my CV.
