Born and raised in Southern California, I live, teach, and write in the Bay area

by way of Goettingen, Germany, Puntarenas, Costa Rica, and Tucson Arizona.

In Costa Rica, I taught third grade English, Math, Science

and Geography at St. Patrick’s American School.

I am back in California as Assistant Professor of Rhetoric and Composition

in the department of English at Santa Clara University.

Family and culture motivate me as a writer, scholar, and educator.
