Guten Tag! I am originally from Highland, Utah and am passionate about teaching and learning. After learning German as a teenager, I lived in Germany and Austria for two years on a volunteer service mission, where I spoke and interacted with Germans on a daily basis. Upon returning home, I taught beginning and intermediate German to young adults (ages 19-21). I then worked for several years as a German translator, where I translated documents, webpages, and owner's manuals for international companies. Interacting with German friends and classmates and soaking in the German culture continues to be one of my favorite pastimes. I am currently an MBA student at the University of Notre Dame and living in South Bend, Indiana with my wife.
