(Fresh Prince style)
Iiiiiiiiiiin south San Francisco, born and raised
in the Mission was where I spent most of my days.
Speaking that Spanish, accepting gays all cool,
focused lots of energy on wrestling and school.
When applying for college other places looked good,
wanted to try some schools out of my neighborhood.
I got into one little college and I went there
lived in LA for four years, but I wasn't a bear.
LA taught me to really love shaking my rear
keep my moves looking fresh, perfecting them in the mirror
if anything I thought my passion was rare,
but I thought "Naah forget it YO HOMES TO BEL AIR!!!!"
In a real sentence though, I was born and raised in SF and grew up

life--dancing and teaching--during my undergrad in LA and am back
in the bay working with the youth.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a teacher in deep East Oakland. I love that I spend 10+ hours

amateur chiropractry, smiling, persevering, giving (however you
want to take that), showing affection, taking things a step too
far, being peer pressured.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm gonna go out on a limb and say my height and then probably my
smile or my laugh. I guess it depends on the context in which we
meet. It could be my dance skills, my appetite for sushi or my
rapping, based on the context.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hip Hop, Sandwiches, my students, laughter, hugs, my brother.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

a cat, and when i will get to run, read, dance, drink, wrestle or
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Building kinship with the clique, dinner with my parents across the
bay or catching up on sorely missed sleep.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm pretty solidly afraid of dogs. Don't judge me, there's a story
behind it. Too long for messages. Maybe over coffee.
I'm improving a ton though.
