I enjoy engaging with young people and helping them learn and grow. My background includes PhD-level education in international relations and comparative politics and political economy, and a BA in economics with a minor in French and Spanish. I've taught and tutored at the university level, studied art in Paris, lectured in Argentina, written a book on China, wrote, directed and produced a feature film, have ghostwritten for celebrities, and written for major corporations in the cybersecurity, manufacturing and financial services industries. I look forward to bringing all I've learned and the skills I've developed to you, my valued students.
