I recently completed an MFA in Creative Writing at Cornell University where I taught both freshman writing and creative writing. Before that, I obtained a Master's degree in Anthropology and a Certificate in Culture and Media from NYU. While there, I worked with undocumented youth in the city just prior to the eruption of the mass coming out movement.
I am an artist, writer, and scholar. I have done work in photography, documentary film, cultural studies, creative writing, and have focused especially on the melding of storytelling and the social protest arts. Currently, I am a member of Sin Huellas, an art collective which created the multi-media exhibit, "Detention Nation" that has been shown in Houston, Denver, Topeka, and most recently in Lubbock.
I am currently the Associate Director of Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies at TCU. Previously, I taught Mexican American Studies and Puente classes at Lee College. I continue to work with state-wide efforts to promote Mexican American Studies and Ethnic Studies at the K-16 level in Texas and beyond.
