I support the activists who are right now forcing the reallocation of city budgets to remedy racist violence. They renew my hope for the future of all of us.
In my day job, I teach immigrants, mainly women, to communicate in English, and I was active in my chapter of the United Federation of Teachers until the paternal model finally defeated me.
Former jobs, in New Zealand, England and the U.S, include farm and construction laboring, driving, computer programming, computer sales, meatpacking, sewing, appliance assembly, and clerical work.
I live with my wife, Vienna Carroll, in New York City. I love plants both wild and cultivated, and use food as medicine.
