I have a BA in Anthropology and some graduate courses. I also have an MA in English, specializing in Linguistics and ESL. I worked with the Pular (Fula) in West Africa and Quichua in the Andes on water supply projects and am familiar with their cultures. I also taught English in Saudi Arabia and Japan for a number of years. I speak Japanese and Thai, and am going to teach in Myanmar next month. Finally, I have taken many business courses and published a paper on cloud computing in JISAR last month.
