Some bullet points, in lieu of a classic bio -- which you can find on my IMDB:
I grew up in San Jose, CA, and began acting in the 8th grade.
I went to Brown University and ran a radio program while in Providence, RI. There, I was trained in broadcast news and djed soul and funk music. My dj name was Qluv (and I did happen to interview Questlove).
I am an organizer, and I co-founded a podcast on Vietnam.
As a trainer/facilitator with a little luck and a lot of love, I've worked with people from all over the world from different walks of life -- from pediatric oncologists in Egypt, to migrant workers in Asia.
