Born and raised in California (Los Angeles and the SF Bay Area) . but lived in NYC all my adult life.
I love music, travel, reading, biking, working out, & the beauty & magic of nature. Roller coasters, adventure, changing paradigms, and DJing are a few other likes. I am never bored!
I spent over a decade teaching 5th and 6th grade in East Harlem, and then a few years of teacher training before starting an acclaimed youth empowerment/media non-profit after-school program that ran from 1996-2010.
In the last couple years, I've been doing "me" living a bit easier and relaxed, catching up on some world traveling. The good life.
Places I've visited:
Barbados, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Guadeloupe, Italy, Jamaica, Mexico, Netherlands, Nicaragua, Panama, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Senegal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, Tortola BVI, Turkey, Trinidad & Tobago
