I currently work at the Crown Heights Community Mediation Center, mostly with Youth Organizing to Save Our Streets. I used to be a freelance journalist, writer, editor, and teacher, and I still do freelance editing on the side. I’ve also been paid to do voice work, language testing, and other odd jobs.
I grew up in New York City; lived in Bogotá, Colombia, for two years; and am now back in New York. One of my friends once told me:
You are a venomous tarantula wrapped around the face of humanity. You have your legs in everything from the blogosphere to the notorious Colombian English tutoring racket. And while the developed world crumbled around you, you used your cunning to escape to the tropics and start a new life more successful than ever.
Also, you strongly considered getting a face tattoo.
Back from the tropics and still without a face tattoo, I use Twitter, Facebook, CouchSurfing, LinkedIn, and Flickr. The best way to reach me is through Google+ (click “Send an email” under the profile picture).
