I grew up in New York but now call Hoboken home. I’m a retired economist whose research focused on inequality, poverty, and immigration. At present I teach English to adults at the Open Door of New York and New Jersey and volunteer at Planned Parenthood. I am passionate about yoga, language, theatre, and music. I love travel, and recent trips include hiking in Chilean Patagonia and Switzerland. I love being outdoors, be it wandering around the city, kayaking in Michigan, or biking in Liberty State Park!
