Marian Catholic

I'm a certified EFL teacher who is presently teaching at an international school in Uzbekistan. In my spare time, I like to dabble in Catholic theology and Biblical exegesis. I hold a B.A. in Philosophy and Religious Studies from St. Michael's College, University of Toronto. My profile photo was taken by a fellow pilgrim at the Chapel of the Apparitions in the sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima, Portugal.
