I’m a teacher and writer in Southern California.

I’ve taught English for 10+ years in L.A., Colombia, Brazil, and Orange County.

I believe in simplicity, balance, and the healing and empowerment that comes from telling a personal story.

I believe a personal statement can be the beginning of your college career, be the moment you begin to own your story.

I’m married to a wonderful girl named Vanessa, and I like to run, ride, and surf.

I believe that our words are our magic.
