Kevin Elstob teaches French. He is an avid traveler who puts biking and hiking in California and Provence at the top of his activities list. His most recent journey was to the Alpes Maritimes in the south of France. Elstob has also spent a lot of time in Canada (from coast to coast). If you would like to see more see Elstob's Facebook and blog pages.

Since working on the theatre of French playwright Michel Vinaver for his PhD, Elstob has continued to examine ways in which the visual arts, particularly theatre and film, represent French and Francophone culture. He has led a number of post-film discussions and question and answers sessions at the Crest movie theater.

He has a profound interest in multilingualism and how it changes one's appreciation of life. One of the projects he is working on presently is the multi-dimensional and multilingual theatrical work of Robert Lepage.

Elstob has also collaborated on a number of translations for organizations in Northern California. Recently he was lead translator of an Avian Flu workshop for UC Davis Wildlife Center's programs in Djibouti and West Africa.

Elstob is board president of the Sacramento French Film Festival and former president and founding member of the Alliance Française de Sacramento. He is vice president of the Sacramento French Club where he plays Pétanque. He is also a qualified Pétanque umpire.

He likes to write fiction and poetry when he has time, but he mostly is successful with film and theater criticism. Elstob loves to laugh; he adores palindromes, word plays and a good joke.
