Growing up in an obscure part of southern England, I had the good fortune of an extraordinary History teacher whose focus was Spain and Latin America. Despite having no knowledge of the Spanish language myself , something about the teacher’s passion and ability to convey the fascinating subject matter hooked me. After receiving a Bachelor’s degree in History from the University of London, I moved to Argentina where I worked as an English and Creative Writing tutor and studied advanced Spanish at the University of Buenos Aires. In 2018, I received my doctorate in Spanish and Latin American Studies from Stanford. Whilst pursuing my PhD, I had the opportunity to teach college-level language courses from Introductory Spanish to Advanced Oral Communication, as well as additional courses on Latin American Literature and Philosophy. I now live in Los Angeles where, concurrent with my work as a mentor, I am a professional playwright and screenwriter and proud member of The Writers Guild of America.
