Micheal at the summit of Machu Picchu, 2006

I taught Hellenistic Greek at Bluefield College (VA) and Southern Seminary (KY), served as a Mellon Research Fellow in Greek Linguistics at UNC Chapel Hill, taught Classical Greek at NC State, and Biblical Studies at Meredith College.

I now teach English and Spanish and occasionally give seminars for  teachers on language acquisition theory and methods.

I have published a number of items about the application of modern Linguistics to the study and description of Ancient Greek as it was used in the Hellenistic period. My academic passion is reading Ancient Greek and studying the way the language functioned for native speakers in the ancient world.

I live in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I am bilingual. Además del inglés, hablo español. I spend time in Perú, my wife’s country of origin, as often as I can. She and I have organized several expeditions to Peru to explore both the modern cultures and their ancient roots.

You can find a little more information about me on the Linguist List site. They’ve listed a few publications in Greek Linguistics, but not my work with English or Spanish Language Acquisition.

I enjoy designing and maintaining websites. Here are a few of my favorites:
