Growing up in a small town in the Appalachian Mountains, I came to love the peace and pristine beauty of nature, the casual pace of life of small town America, and the ease of a life only enjoyed in places with a sparse population. Naturally, this background led me to come to China.

After a brief flirtation studying computer engineering at Virginia Tech, I spent most of my 20s traveling the United States and working on small business endeavors with close friends. With some success, some failure, and years of unforgettable adventures under my belt; I decided it was time to go back and complete my studies. Older and wiser, I decided to forgo technical fields and pursue my interests in the humanities despite the dismal lack of job opportunities.

That choice led me to the path I’m on now. My studies drew me to delve into the relationships and connections between East and West. I was fascinated to realize that the divide between the two is far narrower than tradition would lead us to believe; with a rich history of cooperation and rivalry waiting to be discovered by the curious scholar. My interests led me to pursue graduate study at the University of Macau, where my work has focused on the Treaty Port communities of early twentieth century China, where foreign and Chinese met and many of our current ideas about cultural identity were formed.

While pursuing my Master’s degree in Macau, I taught in the University’s English Language Center for two years. Afterwards, I jumped on an opportunity to teach at Zhuhai Number 2 High School’s International program, where I worked with students planning to attend American universities. I’m thrilled to be at BNU now, surrounded by a beautiful campus and friendly people.
