As a community college English professor, I teach English as a Second Language, Creative Writing, a bunch of other English Department courses, and occasionally, when my schedule allows, Women’s & Gender Studies. As the secretary of my faculty union, I run our blog and take care of communications. As a poet and essayist, my work is rooted in the impact feminism has had on my life as a man, particularly as a survivor of childhood sexual violence. As a literary co-translator, I write about the relevance of classical Persian poetry to our contemporary lives. He/him.
