My self-summary
I cherish communication, honesty, and reflection. I'm often caught getting all excited with kids about snails or boogers and chatting with older people about life and the world.

I'm also looking for insight on building alternatives to oppressive institutions...i.e. capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy, heteronormativity, etc. I actively seek to be a part of contemporary efforts toward Social and Environmental Justice.

I draw and paint. I like talking with movie nerds about movies, theater nerds about theater, forestry nerds about trees etc. I like hiking, biking, yoga, running, and the occasional skydive.

What I’m doing with my life
Reading, talking, listening, drawing, painting, and teaching.

I'm was teaching a lot of sociology at community college, working with folks with learning disabilities in a charter school, and working with a great food justice group that you should check out: http://plantingjustice.org/. Now I'm seeking to understand creativity and commodities through the Sociology PhD program at UC Davis.

Last year I took an 8-month trip through Ecuador, Colombia (2 months), The Caribbean, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and LAOPDR. It is still with me.

I'm also eating plenty of garlic and spicy stuff.
