Native English Speaker Conversant in German
Born in Pennsylvania (USA)
Joshua is a graduate of West Chester University’s Bachelor of English and Spalding University’s Master of Fine Arts programs, where he studied English Literature and Creative Writing. He has taught and tutored English at the pre-secondary, secondary, and university level, sharing with students his passion for the English language as both an art and a science.
He is a fiction writer and poet with a penchant for the humorous. Whenever he is not reading or writing, he might be found struggling through a game of chess, enjoying an old British film, or tripping his way through an evening's ballroom dancing.
If you would like to read some of Joshua's writings on the English language, his website contains amusing articles on topics such as etymology, grammar, and literature: The Ways to Wit.
