I'm a New Yorker, but was born on very different island in the Caribbean. One with coconuts and sand, as opposed to concrete and skyscrapers.
I'm also a storyteller. Like many before me, I ignored my calling to write and enjoyed many detours by working in higher education, as a line cook, an airplane cleaner and loader, a kids cooking teacher, a waiter, and a cashier.
I don't like to talk about myself very much, but I welcome you to read my work to get to know me. You will learn more than you can imagine.
P.S. That's me, drinking a flat white.
