Roni Weiss was born in Oceanside, Long Island, New York.  His father grew up on Long Island and his mother grew up in New York City.  He has a younger brother.

Growing up in Snohomish County, Washington, Roni was active in sports and music, with his sports emphasis being ice hockey and his musical focus being the trumpet.

At the age of 10, Roni began attending Edmonds Community College, receiving an Associate’s Degree with Honors in 1996 at the age of 12.

Roni graduated from Lynnwood High School in 1999 at the age of 15.

From 1999-2002, he attended the University of Washington, graduating with double degrees in English (with a Literature emphasis) and Drama. During his time in the UW School of Drama, he was highly active in acting, writing, directing and producing. Roni’s “The Big Idea” festival was a week-long, multiple-venue festival in which he served as the Executive Producer.

Starting in 2004, Roni began what became a series of global trips. Over the course of less than a year in 2007-2008, Roni visited 6 continents. He has taught English in Italy, Taiwan, France and Chile and has visited 70+ countries, more than 1/3 of the countries in the world.

Currently, he is a panelist on Don’t Worry About The Government, a weekly political podcast which was listed on iTunes’ “New & Notable.”  More about his other online projects can be found here.

I work with John Bardos of JetSetCitizen.com and YouCanTeachEnglish.com and we would love to interview you by email to ask you some questions about teaching English in Italy, Taiwan, France and Chile. It should only take about 30 minutes of your time and we will promote your interview on Twitter and StumbleUpon. Please let me know if you are interested.
