I love punk rock, teaching, writing, and my dog Cocoa Bean. I spend the majority of my time at my school where I teach Humanities (Language Arts and American History) in Huntington Park, CA. The kids are amazing, if a bit chatty at times.
As far as writing and reading go, I adore nonfiction. Nick Flynn, Joan Didion, Sarah Vowell, and E.B. White. I received an MFA in Creative Writing (Nonfiction) from Sarah Lawrence College earlier this year and have been published in a couple of small journals.
I want to move around constantly, see as many places as possible. I also love high fives.
