I'm a scholar of American Studies at the University of California Berkeley with a focus on Law, Media, and Social Memory in post military coup d'état Honduras. Originally from Humboldt Park in the West Side of Chicago, I'm now posted in the East Bay.
I design/produce multimedia projects on progressive politics in the U.S., the Central American diaspora and urban Latinx culture.
I'm always looking fwd to new friends and connections. I dig: café, comic books, Afro-Indigenous beats, gadgets, and prayer. Fluent in Spanglish. What's good with you?
