I was born in Inglewood, but grew up in the Bay. I attended the University of Michigan - AA for undergrad, where I originally started in Engineering, but transferred to English Language Arts where I earned my BA. I worked outside of Academia for a while, which afforded me the ability to learn from different places. I even lived in China (四川成都) for two years. I came back to earn my MA in English Literature and Languages from Mills College in Oakland, and have lived in Oakland ever since. Before working at Chabot, I worked at both the high school and university levels. My entire educational (and life) approach is centered around revolutionary equity and social justice. Revolution and abolition are our only hope. When I’m not in the classroom, I’m being a dad, golfing, or I’m writing and performing poetry in the Bay and around the country.
