p.s. What you won’t learn from my bio is that I’m a native Angeleno who has also lived in the Bay Area, New York, and three Latin America countries. I am a retired dancer and capoeirista. My grown children are artists who make music and multimedia storytelling. We have immediate family on three continents, and speak three languages. I am a daughter of a feminist artist from the Middle East, and a labor lawyer from Newark. They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. That would be a lemon tree on my dad’s side, and cactus fruit on my mom’s. In my life, the arts and justice grow from the same earth.
