A Bit About Me

I received my Ph.D. in American literature from Howard University and my B.A. in English Philology from Universidad de La Laguna, Canary Islands. I'm an Assistant Professor in English at the University of the District of Columbia. My poetry has been published in Beltway Poetry Quarterly, Al pie de la casa blanca, and Knocking on the Door of the White House. I am also a documentary filmmaker and my directorial debut was in 2014 with Near the River.
