My self-summary
I grew up in Florida, moved to New York after school and love it here in the city.

I moved up here to teach middle school in Harlem. I fell in love with it and am still at it. I am now teaching at a new charter school that we opened last year in Newark. It's been an incredibly difficult and incredibly amazing experience.

I’m quick with a joke and quick to admit when they are not funny... which is most of the time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Kafka on the Shore, You Shall Know Our Velocity, What is the What, Love in the Time of Cholera, A Confederacy of Dunces, Slaughterhouse Five...

Movies: The Life Aquatic, The Dark Knight, Step Brothers, Love and Basketball, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind to name a few... I love going to one of the many Independent Theaters in the city but don’t always have time. Enter Netfilx Instant Watch.

Music: Alice Smith, Mos Def, TV on the Radio, Bon Iver, The Roots, Phoenix, The Rural Alberta Advantage, Jay Electronica, Bill Withers, Charles Mingus... pretty much if it’s good, I’ll listen to it.

Food: I’ll eat pretty much eat anything... There’s a great falafel place around the block from me that I frequent, Chipotle of course, Thai take out, pizza... I can hold my own in the kitchen as well.

On a typical Friday night I am
at a happy hour with my coworkers, hanging out with friends, watching a movie, or sometimes grading papers.
