Lo Que Hay

What I Can Offer

I teach college courses on Film, Dance, Theatre (in no particular order). I believe in grounding my courses in the cultural realities of where and how art is created. I have Acted, Danced, Directed, Choreographed and Stage Managed professionally, but my favorite job is teaching. It is where I get to learn the most, respond to community and participate in creating co-knowledge re-imagining the world and ourselves.
