Hello! My name is Michael.

Learn more about my ASL project here: https://ablelingo.com/about-us/

SINCE 2012, I have successfully taught customized American Sign Language courses and English courses to students from around the world. I grew up with a Deaf brother within the Deaf community. I have graduate and undergraduate degrees in Spanish and Criminal Justice. I am TESOL and TEFL certified. Prior to teaching online, I was a police officer and a U.S. Federal Investigator. I'm fluent in English, Spanish, American Sign Language, and Indonesian.

WHEN I was three years old, my younger brother became sick with spinal meningitis. In the process, my brother became deaf with an almost complete hearing loss. This difficult situation provided a unique opportunity for my family and I to become fluent in American Sign Language (ASL). My brother was not sent away to a deaf or hard of hearing school. He grew up with us, his hearing family, and we were active in the Deaf community.

AS a former police officer and federal investigator, I often used ASL to communicate with and serve members of the Deaf community. I decided to create simple, step-by-step ASL courses because sign language is a useful and fun skill to have. Like learning any language, it opens your mind and creates the ability to communicate with a whole new group of people.
