Tony Kaizen

Sensei

Tony started the Life in English podcast as a hobby back in 2018 while working as an English teacher. After realizing that creative work is what he really wanted to do for a living, he decided to blend his two passions, art and education, and start a media company that aims to teach the world English in a more interesting and natural way.

When he's not working on Life in English, he's most likely playing soccer, listening to and/or writing raps, or studying JavaScript.
