My self-summary
I'm living in a great house with friends in downtown Toronto. I recently finished my PhD in political philosophy (hence the "not-a-real-Dr" handle), and am currently working as a prof at UofT. Sometimes I even wear a tie. I pretend it's a Halloween costume.

When I'm not locked in the ivory tower I try my best to fight the good fight. Over the years I've been involved in various kinds of social justice organizing, from anti-poverty to migrant justice, etc.

So, ya, fighting the Man when I can, working for him when I have to....
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to live deep and suck the marrow of life, even though marrow doesn't sound particularly delicious. Or vegetarian.

Teaching and writing, and trying to get my rosemary to grow faster and my oregano to grow slower.

Conceptualizing alternative economies that manage to sediment the values of freedom, equality, and democracy into concrete institutional form.

Freedom is a muscle of the human spirit that has atrophied from years of disuse, but given regular exercise could grow strong - that said, any alternative economic system would obviously need to retain efficacious means to mass produce salt and vinegar chips. Clearly "Lays" will have to be renamed "The Emma Goldman Collective for Crunchables", but what's in a name, right?
I’m really good at
I make a killer salmon teriyaki and pretty scrumptious crème brûlée.

I kick ass at fruit ninja.

I will also always offer to make you a cup of tea. (But I might roll my eyes if you take it with sugar).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Oh man, oh man, this is so hard!

Fiction: Saint-Exupéry's Le Petit Prince, Orwell's 1984, Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Brink's A Chain of Voices....

Philosophy: Sartre's Existentialism is a humanism, Rorty's Truth and Progress, Kuhn's The Structure of Scientific Revolutions

Politics: Polanyi; Rudolf Rocker; Chomsky; Schweickart.

Comics: Calvin & Hobbes.

Movies: Land and Freedom, Big Lebowski, and am I allowed to admit Shawshank?

Shows: Jamie Oliver at Home (please don't judge me), currently watching the west wing, just finished spending way too much time on Buffy. And Girls.

Music: currently listening a lot to The White Stripes, Billy Bragg, and Miles Davis. And Macklemore; can't get "thrift shop" out of my head.

Food: mmmm... Anything french or italian. Garlic, lemon, and rosemary are my true loves in life. Though my last meal before execution would probably have to be some kind of non-veggie faux indian dish like butter chicken...
