In my previous lives, I hand-rolled thousands of croissants and taught kids how to divide fractions and use words.

Once, I wrote the children’s book El Hermano, La Hermana, a La Vaca: a trilingual children's story written in collaboration with elementary students in Bolivia.

Another time, I rode my bike around the Great Lakes with the Solidago Riders. We made videos about community-based change.
