Biomedical Science Teacher

Moved to Denver from San Francisco in 2017, I graduated from UCLA with a BA in psychology and Masters in Secondary Education. I spend my summers teaching a physics summer program at University of California, Berkeley and run wilderness survival excursions with Outward Bound USA. I’m a writer and researcher for a documentary called “A Dangerous Idea: Eugenics, Genetics & the American Dream,” that reveals how scientists and policy makers have promoted the gene as a pseudo-scientific myth, and rolled back gains on race, class, and gender equality for decades, based on the idea that genes determine who we are and what we can achieve.

In my spare time I am enjoy acting and writing screenplays and golfing.
