I first came to Sri Lanka in 1985 as an English language teacher at CIS (Colombo International School). In 1995 I joined the British Council in Colombo. For 15 years I taught the beginners’ Sinhala course at the British Council. I now teach beginners' Sinhala and Tamil courses independently.
My book, A Dictionary
of Sri Lankan English, was
published in 2007. Since then I have co-published (with Sandi Titus) the trilingual children's book Keerthihan's Kite, and (with Lynda Gill) illustrated Sinhala and Tamil alphabet cards.
In 2013 I published SET: a trilingual dictionary of colloquial Sinhala, English and Tamil.
