My work is grounded in 1980s Bushwick, Brooklyn, a neglected Black and Brown neighborhood that I left when I was 13. I return to my home hood in my stories to make visible the invisible, & chronicle my life in the tradition of Esmeralda Santiago.
I’m a writer based in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I send out a weekly essay on issues in food, from politics and climate change to culture and labor, and a weekly podcast. Paid subscribers receive "From the Kitchen," a weekly recipe dispatch.
