José has worked in education for 8+ years, as Adjunct Professor for Broadcast Production & Operations at his alma mater, and as an English-as-a-Foreign-Language teacher for varying institutions. For 4 years, he lived in Argentina and was part of the in-country CEA Buenos Aires team, where he developed a substantial network of internship partners, coached students through their study & internship abroad journey, and coordinated experiential learning activities integral to the academic curricula of the CEA Study Center.
