Born in London to a Canadian father and English/French mother, I began to become interested in foreign languages and travel at an early age. I first came to Russia before the fall of the Soviet Union, working for a publishing house as a literary translator, and in the electronic and print media from 1992 onwards. I edited a series of English language magazines for foreigners in Russia from 2002 onwards. I started teaching in 2008, and I am grateful to be able to bring aspects of my professional experience into the classroom.
