Teacher. Poet. Citizen. 

During a time when our freedoms are being challenged by some of the very public servants sworn to protect them, it becomes the civic duty of those who have the means to advocate for those who do not. The artist with his brush, the actor with her voice, the poet with their words... all must work to illuminate these injustices in order to restore the dignity and honor that once defined civil service in America.

Quotables

Democracy must be more than two wolves and a sheep arguing over what to have for dinner.

James Bovard

We have multiplied our possessions but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We've learned how to make a living but not a life. We've added years to life, not life to years.

George Carlin

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character, that is the goal of true education.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

The point is that there is tremendous hypocrisy among the christian right. And I think that christian voters should start looking at global warming and extreme poverty as a religious issue that speaks to the culture

Al Franken

Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.

Benjamin Franklin

Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion.

Jack Kornfield

 

BIO

IMG_1083_edited.jpg

I was born and raised in San Diego -one of the nation's largest border communities. While American by birth, I come from a family of immigrants. My mom's mother was born in Italy in 1915 and my father in France in 1942. Both would immigrate to the United States at different periods in their lives and eventually forge their own paths to citizenship. One day in the 80's inside of a San Diego laundro-mat my parents found themselves side by side meeting for the first time. The rest is love and history

-although the laundromat is still in business.    

During my time at U.C. Davis I triple majored in French, Italian, & International Relations. In addition to studying abroad in Siena, Italy, I spent another 6 months living with family in France, working on the Champs-Elysées, and studying for my teaching certificate at TEFL International -Paris. When I returned to California to pursue a career in teaching English as a Second Language (after a micro- career in the restaurant business), I stumbled upon a love of my own.

During a brief stay in Davis, while awaiting my start date as an ESL Instructor, I met a girl named Susan in a neighborhood cafe where I had worked in college. Little did I know she had been a regular for years without our paths ever crossing. After seven weeks of movie-like run-ins at the Cafe and several requests for her number; she finally wrote it down on a receipt and handed it to me, smiling ear to ear. 

 

She's been stuck with me ever since :)

Not long after the 2016 election, the 45th "president" was quick to wage his war on immigration. With the Muslim Ban in full effect and messaging built on anti-immigration pouring out of the White House, my school began experiencing sharp declines in student enrollment as visa approvals from the federal 

government dropped. 

Within just a few months I was out of the job as Head Teacher. 

Choosing to view this as an opportunity rather than a handicap, Susan and I decided to pack up our belongings and move to Portland, OR with our two cats, Mini Cooper, and a 17-foot U-haul.

For nearly 3 years we lived in a small apartment that overlooked the downtown skyline, but after incessant rioting, a pandemic, and shameless corporate management, we moved into an ADU away from the city and in a wonderful neighborhood we can finally call home. It's been magical.
