I am an Assistant Professor of Spanish (Linguistics) at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque. I love my home town and refer to it as ABQ, Burque or Albaquirky among friends. I try to take as much advantage as I can of the wonderful natural resources around us here in ABQ, especially hurtling myself down hills on a mountain bike. I am enthusiastically married to the love of my life and we have two daughters who speak both Spanish and English. To enjoy our bilingualism, we often travel to Spanish-speaking countries, most recently Mexico, Nicaragua, and Spain.
I aim to treat everyone with respect and try to travel with my heart!
