Born in the San Francisco Bay Area, this California boy feels lucky to have been raised by parents who emphasized travel as a means of learning about oneself and one’s world. Eager to begin his own explorations, Keith left home at fifteen to study abroad in Hamburg, Germany. After returning to the US, he studied Literature and Theater Arts at the University of California, Santa Cruz, taking advantage of UCSC’s Education Abroad Program to study and perform Shakespeare in Bristol, England. Graduating with two Bachelor’s degrees, he proceeded into UCSC’s MA in Education and Teaching Credential Program. Following his post-grad studies, Keith worked as an English teacher at Harbor High School in Santa Cruz, where he was introduced to the world of ESL teaching! A lover of life, Keith is ecstatic for this opportunity to work within a Bhutanese community and experience such a unique culture!
