Greetings and salutations,
      I was born and raised on Long Island in New York and moved to Los Angeles in the early 21st century. I studied Comparative Humanities at SUNY Old Westbury and did Graduate work at CUNY Queens College. 
     I have been teaching at Hollywood High School for over a decade and a member of the New Media Academy since its inception. 
     I am also a sponsor for the LGBTQ+ Club and the Open Mic Club.
     All information can be found on schoology. My syllabi and film permission slip are in the Opening Documents folder.  I have also attached those documents on this page. 
Please email me at or [email protected]

I promise if you read the notes your grade will improve.
