I’m a Professor of Spanish Literature and Theater at NYU but I’m originally from California. I enjoy taking long walks in my free time and New York City always offers something new around every corner…I simply love it! My favorite season in the City is the Fall because of the trees changing color in Central Park and Halloween which is my favorite holiday.

  • “United Nations: the Headquarters for peace”
  • Contrary to what New Yorkers say when they joke about it, the United Nations headquarters are not designed to torture us with traffic jams whenever a General Assembly is organized.
