About Me:

I grew up in south St. Louis city, lived on the northside for a decade, and now live near Roosevelt with my partner and our cat, Merle. I have always loved stories, whether fiction or history, books or film. I believe that History and Literature hold many secrets and lessons for the future and this moment right now. I look forward to sifting through them with you and dreaming about the future.

pero a mí un pajarito me conto que tamos hechos de historias.”
