LanguageBird ASL Instructor

Hello! I was born and raised in Virginia, USA. I attended Gallaudet University in Washington DC in 1995. After being mainstreamed all my life, I fell in love with ASL and Deaf culture. I have been signing for over 26 years. It has been incorporated into my life because many of my in laws are deaf. I am a father of 6 children and currently reside in South Carolina. A cool story about ASL. I attended a Deaf Expo one year where I met this deaf fellow from Jordan. As we chatted back and forth for about 30 min, we decided to exchange emails. He handed me his paper and it was written in Arabic! I thought it was great that we used ASL to communicate, even though we knew different “written” languages. I am extremely excited to share my passion for American Sign language with you all.
