I speak with my hands and like to punctuate with my eyes; I rarely stay in one place, and like to meander. And yet, every engagement is different and requires myriad ingredients. I have been cultivating my ability to give presentations since at least 2000, which is when I officially started my teaching career as an adjunct for the Writing Program at UMASS-Amherst. I moved to NYC in 2002 and made a living as an adjunct and facilitator for Kingsborough Community College/C.U.N.Y. Then, I switched “teams” and started teaching high school English in the Bronx as a NYC/DOE Teaching Fellow while I finished coursework for a state credential (NY). In 2010, I moved to Los Angeles and from 2013 to 2015 I taught English Language Arts inside the Los Angeles County Jails, specifically at Men’s Central Jail, Twin Towers, and Century Regional Detention Facility.
