Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.)

Walt Whitman, “Song of Myself” (1855)

I love this Whitman quote because it speaks to the ways I consider myself a Renaissance woman, which is reflected in the variety of work I do and topics that interest me. 

I’m a freelance writer, editor, and researcher with a PhD in ethnomusicology (think the anthropology of music) from UC Berkeley.

I also offer a range of other professional services, such as presentations/talks (Cuban music & society, American popular culture) and Spanish translation

Get in touch if you’re interested in hiring me for any of these services!
