I am a writer, a reader, a community organizer and dabbler in all things art. I love to cook, do yoga, do paper crafts, crochet and collect obscure jazz LPs. I was born and raised in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
I tend to turn mundane objects and situations into grandiose polemics. As a result of such behavior my circle of friends and family tends to be small. We tend to finish discussions (arguments) with baked goodies. The bigger the argument or the more obscure the subject matter is, the higher the caloric value of the baked good.
Discussion about intersexuality : small box of chocolate chip cookies
Discussion about high rates of intersexuality in the Dominican Republic : large box of eclairs
Discussion about high rates of intersexuality in a particular village in DR that my family so happens to come from : extra large box of Crumbs caramel apple cup cakes
See? Nevertheless, I have a profound appreciation for the way that my family destroys my sanity and how they build it right up with their love.
