My self-summary
I grew up in Florida, moved to New York after school and now live and teach in Newark.

If you'd have asked me back then if I'd still be teaching, I would have said, "Definitely not." Around year 3 I got decent enough at it that I knew could keep going. I love what I do and think it's really important work. There's never a dull moment, It's incredibly difficult, and also incredibly rewarding.
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.
The six things I could never do without
My music
My friends and family
Good food
My bed
I spend a lot of time thinking about
dinner, where I'll travel to next, social injustice, music, teaching, hilarious things my students say and do...
On a typical Friday night I am
at a happy hour with my coworkers, hanging out with friends, watching a movie (read: falling asleep while watching a movie/Netflix), or sometimes grading papers.
