Welcome to my website. I'm an assistant professor of Spanish and Latin American/Latino Studies at Fordham University. I teach and write about Colonial literature, seventeenth-century discourse, travel narrative, and second language acquisition. Here you’ll find information about my courses and my writing, as well as some select Colonial Studies links.
