My self-summary
Public school teacher trying to heal our fractured world & make it to the weekend. I enjoy woodworking and make my own musical instruments. I used to have a dog, but that little dude is gone. I like flowers, especially gardinias.
What I’m doing with my life
On the grind. Teaching kids how to think for themselves. Making connections, having real conversations. Been doing a lot of political stuff recently, working with students and parents to challenge systems of injustice in public education and beyond.
I’m really good at
Deescalating conflict. Looking at an issue from multiple perspectives. And educational hip hop. Writing raps about punctuation marks, literary terms, and improper use of smartphone technology.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair. It grows fast & gets kind of crazy

Six things I could never do without
Beyond the bottom rung of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs (water, food, shelter, warmth, safety from predators)
1) Intimacy
2) Responsibility
3) Silent contemplation
4) Access to books
5) Music
6) Memory
I spend a lot of time thinking about
"If I'm not for myself, who is for me? If I am only for myself, who am I? If not now, when?"
On a typical Friday night I am
Slashing tires, rolling drunks, and beating up small children...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Is my exhaustion the result of an insane workweek, or is it Low-T?
You should message me if
The stars are aligned & the moon speaking to you. Or if you feel like playing some tennis.
