I am a writer from Chicago, who is greatly influenced by growing up in Logan Square, the punk and house movements in the 1980s, my Cuban and Colombian background, and social justice in education. I am currently an assistant professor in English at a CUNY college in the Bronx, where I happily live with my husband, poet and playwright Vincent Toro.
