As an artist, writer, and scholar, I have done work in photography, video, 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." The work 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 from Pre-K-PhD in Texas and beyond.
I am a proud Chicana/o Studies major. I also hold an MFA in Creative Writing from Cornell where I taught 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 just as the mass "coming out of the shadows" movement erupted. I continue to use my privilege to work with and advocate for undocumented immigrant communities through my creative, academic, and political work.
