Arnaly Arriaga

ESL and Spanish teacher. Content creator.
Arnaly became a teacher by accident, and that, in her own words, has been the best accident ever. She studied Administration, Marketing and also became a Bachelor of Music from McGill University. She performed, sang, won awards, and decided to have babies when she met the coolest guy, her husband, Ken. That's when teaching appeared in her life. It started as a side job, and ended up being a very successful career. After 10 years of teaching piano, English and Spanish. Her love for teaching and creating keeps her happily busy. She is quite moderate with the Hot Peppers.

Ken Shasky

Spice nut, Marketing and Content creator
Ken has hot spices running through his veins.... literally! He could compete in the Hottest Pepper Eating Contest and win. Ken worked for more than 20 years in the food brokerage business, where he represented brands such as Tabasco (sounds familiar?) Ocean Spray and many others in Canada. With that same passion, he opened a food truck and became a brand name in Nova Scotia. Now retired from working on the truck, he has his own YouTube show in which he shares his knowledge and has fun. Ken has the responsibility of keeping the content alive and spicy. He was Arnaly's first Spanish student.
