I’ve been fortunate to be one of those people who is passionate about their day job. A poetry slam champion with a Masters in English & Creative Writing, I’ve worked on projects that advance social change and environmental justice — from saving harp seals to abolishing the death penalty to convincing people it’s as easy to recycle things as it is to throw them away. The books I’ve written are being taught at universities across the country and have raised awareness about human rights issues close to my heart.

Some of my career highlights:

  • – Received a Lambda Literary Award
  • – Won a Tag-Team Haiku Championship
  • – Wrote the strategic plan for the Los Angeles Public Library System
  • – Called a “radical” in a special report by the Traditional Values Coalition
  • – Developed winning EPA Green Power Leadership Award applications for 3Degrees and its clients
  • – Appeared on the Tonight Show to perform a birdcall
  • – Featured on the cover of the Oakland, CA phone book
