About George

As well as having been a direct care worker in Charleston, WV recently, plus during grad school in Seattle with people with scoliosis and cerebral palsy, I have been a business English teacher in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Also I am a writer and songwriter. Really keen on Milwaukee, I am considering live-in positions which will allow me to pursue creative and volunteer activities when I have free time. I am proud of a number of creative achievements, including an eBook, and a song on the radio in the Middle East and North Africa at the time of the Arab Spring. I am currently preparing a music video for and about Ukraine, written at the time Crimea was invaded by Russian tanks. I enjoy working with disabled folks who appreciate my help/work and interesting background.
