About Me

I was born in 1968 in Tallahassee, Florida and attended Florida High School from second grade to graduation. I started learning Spanish in Middle School and after working at a record store for a few years picked it up again when I started college. There I studied Spanish and Anthropology. I graduated from FSU with a double major, and two years later finished a Masters in Spanish Literature.

I have traveled in Asia and Latin America, including a summer of linguistic field-work with Ch’ol Mayas in Chiapas, México. I have been teaching at FAMU for about twenty years, first as an adjunct and now full time.
