Teaching is my vocation, traveling is my avocation.
My life education includes such eclectic experiences as: feeding monkeys in Ethiopia, climbing a volcano in Costa Rica, watching a Tango in Buenos Aires, piroguing up the Essequibo River to Kaiteur Falls in Guyana, viewing bicentennial fireworks in Paris, drinking cioccolata calda in Italy, exploring Machu Pichu in Peru, visiting Garcia Marquez’ home in Colombia, Pablo Neruda’s homes in Chile, sampling ceviche in Panama and Mexico, and of course many happy hours on beaches enjoying the many variations of mojitos, coco frio, roti, ackee, . . .
My academic education includes a PhD in Literatures, Languages, and Cultures of the Anglophone Caribbean from the University of Puerto Rico and a three-year Fellowship in Digital Pedagogy at the Georgia Institute of Technology. As an Associate Professor of English at Georgia Gwinnett College, with two ongoing research projects: The Virtual Caribbean Library and the Lost Voices, Forgotten Voyages; both initiatives focus on digital representations of the Caribbean.
