#tbt-Characters from “Stand and Deliver”


I loved the film Stand and Deliver as a kid and still think it’s a ground breaking film showing Raza of all kinds learning and studying mathematics. Instead of feeling foreign to math Jaime Escalante makes you feel like you were born to learn it. “You burros got math in your blood” Edward James Olmos says in the film. For a large group of Brown people who were kept out of high paying jobs, building generational wealth, and power by design-learning calculus was and still is revolutionary. It doesn’t solve everything by any means, but Jaime’s legacy lives on. Have you seen the film? Whats your fav part?

Check out these other characters:

Video – 1st Children’s portrait #tbt

I made this video back in 2012 because I do tons of blog posts but was shy about video. In it I share the first children’s portrait I did of my son who was 8 or so. I’ve done over 50 portraits of children and their family members. I love doing them and will continue to do more in the future. But check out this video for now.

And here are some of the recent portraits I’ve done:
Cinthya & Kids
Mila & Zenzi
