About me: 

I grew up in the Republic of Ireland - Cork city and later moved to the UK where I finished my secondary and University education. After I moved to the United States for some years. I have been teaching English, Spanish and German on and off for more than ten years with a strong background in business English.

Before I started teaching English I worked in the Consumer Electronics industry as a Product Manager and then moved into Hospitality teaching, specializing in Customer Care and Craft Skills training workshops.

I have lived and worked in seven countries on four continents and so have an effective relationship with different and diverse cultures and know the issues foreigners face when trying to master a new language. I spent almost 7 years in Africa mostly in Zambia-Sub Saharan Africa and East Africa Tanzania (Zanzibar) where I worked in the Safari Business as a Sales and Marketing Manager, Lodge Manager, Hotel Manager, Real Estate Broker to eventually setting up a tour operation business that still continues to trade today.

I would say that I am somebody that enjoys all types of people and likes to believe there is good in everyone and that each individual has untapped potential.

I currently run my own company in Warsaw, where I found my home :) I feel strongly motivated to share my knowledge and broad experience to help people and businesses to gain a better footing in the international playing field - that's why CCAcademy has beem created.
