I grew up near San Francisco and lived in Egypt, Kuwait, and Colombia before moving to Jamaica three years ago. I went to undergrad at the University of California in Santa Barbara and to grad school at the American University in Cairo, Egypt. Originally I wanted to be a teacher, but then I got sidetracked by majoring in Middle East politics and working for the US House of Representatives. I love history and literature and do a lot of SAT tutoring. Years ago I passed several Advanced Placement tests but failed the AP Physics exam, which I am NOT bitter about. And I’m thrilled the other tutors are science geniuses because it means I will never have to tutor anyone in chemistry.

Likes: Portland, Woody’s burgers, curry goat patties, coffee, dark chocolate, the Harry Potter books, Game of Thrones, Rick & Morty, Insecure, Marvel movies, making lists, and the song Loodi.

Dislikes: Mobay, Tutti Frutti, mannish water, condensed milk, white chocolate, stream-of-consciousness novels, concerts, yoga, DC comics movies, and the game loodi.
