I am an educator and researcher raised in Lima, Peru and Washington, DC. I am LAII's K-12 Educational Program Coordinator, working to provide resources, programming, and support to educators in New Mexico and beyond. I have worked in the education, non-profit, and start-up sectors on four continents - including as a secondary Social Studies teacher in Alburquerque - and am a former Urban Leaders Fellow. I received my BSc in Social Sciences with Anthropology from Birkbeck, University of London and my MA in Documentary Arts from the University of Cape Town. In my free time, I take walks with my dog Mallory and cat Jack, ride my bicycle very long distances, and participate in various field recording and sound art projects.
