I grew up in the Western New York area between Niagara Falls and Buffalo. Early teaching experiences included teaching Austrian high school students English using comics at Karl-Fransens Universität Graz, Austria, in 1990-91, and a number of K12 teaching experiences. After earning a Masters at Teachers College Columbia University, I held a number of academic positions, including seven years in Japan in roles akin to pre-tenure assistant professor, 語学専任講師. I returned to the US to complete a PhD at Indiana University Bloomington in Instructional Systems Technology, and then taught at Texas A&M University before moving to East Tennessee to teach at UT Knoxville as Assistant Professor of Instructional Technology.
