Writer. Traveler. Teacher.

“Never for a single moment, betray your credo or pretend, but be alive … alive and burning to the end.”

Teaching

I am a certified ESL teacher with over ten years of experience in the United States, the Czech Republic, and Turkmenistan. I have taught K-12, and adults of all ages. I am always looking for extra work, either online or in person. Please email me to request a résumé and letters of reference.

Volunteering

From 2006 to 2008, I was a Peace Corps volunteer in the Central Asian republic of Turkmenistan. During my service, I co-authored a grammar book called “501 Turkmen Verbs.” Since then, I’ve done a number of volunteer projects, including ESL teaching in Guinea-Bissau in 2017. If you have a volunteer opportunity you’d like me to be a part of, please email me with the details.

Writing

I am the author of two travel/adventure novels: “Chuck Life’s a Trip,” which is based on a life-changing trip I took around the world with my childhood buddies in 2006, and “Saving Jahan,” which is based on my Peace Corps service in Turkmenistan. I am also the author of “Breaking the Seal,” a popular blog which follows my life as a writer in California and Prague.


About Moi

I currently live between Prague, where I teach English to keep the lights on, and Livermore in Northern California, where I grew up.

Writing and traveling are my greatest passions. To date, I have visited over eighty countries, and have written the above-mentioned novels and blog based on my experiences.

I earned a BA degree from the University of California at San Diego in International Studies. My articles and short stories have appeared in the UCSD Guardian, the San Diego Union-Tribune and The Prague Revue.

In my spare time, I like to study languages, the more obscure the better. I speak Czech, Turkmen, Farsi, Spanish, and others, with varying degrees of proficiency.
