I am fucking awesome.
Just kidding. I was born and raised in a Caribbean community in Brooklyn. Trini family. I moved back to the area in August 2012 after finishing up grad school and living in Central America for a bit.
Un pensamiento que me hace sonreír: Quisiera sentarme afuera de un café con una mujer bella, tomando un cortado, mirando a la gente, y disfrutando el silencio entre nosotros dos.
I organize and lead international immersion opportunities for university students. A few times a year, I travel abroad, learn about the world with my students, and try to have that inform their politics at home. I also teach an intro level religious studies course.
I'm also trying to keep up my language studies. If anyone wants to speak Spanish together, the first round is on me. The first two rounds if you're willing to teach me French. So serious about this; including totally platonic encounters.
I'm listening to whatever comes on my Nina Simone, salsa, and bachata pandora stations.
You own a pug. Seriously. You enjoy people watching & making up stories about folks.
You are fabulous. The adjective, not the rapper. Well, the rapper, too, I guess. Pause.
