Daniel Grab -USA: Professional English Teacher/Writer/Blogger

Meet Daniel!

I am from Long Island, New York and graduated college in 2013 from the University of New Haven with a BA in Forensic Psychology. After working for 1 year after college with children at a residential treatment center, I moved out to Hawaii with 3 suitcases looking for adventure. I became a substance abuse counselor for the next year and a half. I landed a government job and had about 6 months in between so I figured I'd save money and travel. It was the best decision I've ever made and it changed my life completely. I backpacked SE Asia for 3 months and traveled through 7 countries. I was not ready to come home, but figured I had to give the job I got a chance. Upon returning home I took a course online for a TEFL and achieved the certificate to teach English Overseas. I wanted something to fall back on if this job didn't work out. I fell in love with the people, culture, and lifestyle. So much that I just quit my full time job 6 months in to make my dream a reality and follow my passion for traveling. I aspire to open up my own hostel in the future with a friend I met overseas. I will be moving to Asia in September 2017, working at hostels, and learning the logistics in which they're run in order to potentially buy and/or open/manage my own.
