Andrew is currently a second-year graduate student in English composition at SFSU. He grew up in the Los Angeles area, and attended Cerritos Community College, where he transferred to UC Berkeley and received a degree in English Literature. He also, currently, holds a job as an academic counselor at another university. Andrew aspires to continue researching educational equity practices in the classroom, and his future goal is to teach English in the community college system. He is a lover of geek culture: comic books, anime, video games, etc. Thus, he is hoping to implement a multi-modal model in his curriculum and strives to one-day create a course entirely around these mediums. On a personal level, Andrew loves basketball, geek culture (mentioned above), and stories; he's a strong believer that stories shape how we view the world and our relation to it. So, if you see him on campus, say hi. He'd love to hear about your journey.
