Rana

Originally from Texas, I now live in Brooklyn and work in higher education. I also write social and cultural criticism and have had articles in Pop Matters, Gender & Society and other publications. I probably love Prince more than you do. My name means frog in Spanish and most Romance languages. I do not like frogs.
