I'm originally from LA but spent my formative years in Fresno. I first came to the Bay Area for college and I'm very grateful to be back here for graduate school. Right now I'm about half way through (3 more years) a doctoral program in Sociology of Education. This is an area that I feel incredibly passionate about and love talking about with other people. I'm a strong advocate of social justice and hope my research will one day make schools a little better for underserved students. Perhaps not surprisingly, I find idealism and a good heart very attractive in others! "What's that? You want to make the world better? HOOOOTTT."
