I’m originally from England, but I grew up and went to school in Canada. After finishing my studies at the University of Toronto and getting my teaching certificate I began my language teaching career in the south of Mexico. A few years later I moved to Spain with my family and began training teachers in Barcelona. I started writing material in 2000 and moved to the south of Spain in 2004, where I live now.
My writing and training work take me all over the world to conferences and training events. I’ve written more than fifteen books for language learners, co-written four books for language teachers and founded numerous online projects including the blog Six Things and the e-publishing collective the round.
