About

My background includes a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from the College of Wooster.  My senior independent study thesis focused on the writings of Jean-Paul Sartre, specifically his unrelenting optimism for the power of free will in the face of difficult circumstances, real or imagined.

I love to play guitar. I’ve been playing since I was very young, and music is often my best friend.  My preferences lean toward folk, rock and…folk rock, but I’m also a sucker for bluegrass, jazz and classical. I was playing bar chords when I was 10, and after many years I have a pretty good vocabulary for improvisation.  I also studied classical guitar in college, so I enjoy a wide variety of music.

Most of my professional and recreational life has been centered around computers and photography, so I’m pretty excited to have this opportunity to try my hand at travel photography. But I’m even more excited about the chance to teach English. If I can really make a difference in the lives of a few young people, then I can’t imagine a greater reward. I’m going into this without any formal teaching experience, so maybe I’m a little crazy. I hope you’ll enjoy reading about my journey.

  1. Just found your blog through Greenheart’s FB page. You’ve got some incredible pictures here and a nice and clean presentation. Thanks for your work. I’ll be headed to Georgia in January and it’s helpful to read through your posts, as well as those of the other teacher’s blogging.

    I’ve added a link to your blog on a site I’m developing, eslgeorgia.com. Check out the “teacher blogs” page to see it. I titled it “Carl’s Georgia Blog,” let me know if something else works better.

    Many thanks!
