Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a single father, dedicated to my wonderful son.
My work life is busy and fulfilling.
Redbox is a very good friend of mine. Although I don't own a DVD
player or a television. So it's just laptop viewing. I live without
internet in my home.
I have fond memories of sitting in my living room with my family
waiting for the WORLD PREMIER of Michael Jackson's Thriller video.
When he burned his head during a Pepsi commercial I cried.
Even though I don't have a television I miss watching, "Threes
Company" "The Carol Burnett Show" and "MacGyver". I still own two
turntables and listen to music the way we did when I was a child.
Vinyl is important to me like books.
At heart I am Southern Boy with a country accent that escapes my
mouth from time to time.
There are four journals in my casa that are a project I started
when my son was born. One day he will be handed this collection of
journals to read what life was like for his father during his baby
During the 90's I spent time learning from and becoming humbled by
my experiences in Zapatista communities in Southern Mexico. The
EZLN is a important part of my life.
I enjoy simple things like a good cup of coffee or tea, browsing
through used books, fixing or making things, clean sheets, constant
music playing, people watching and going for walks.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Most all my energy is put into raising my son. I moved from one
state to another to have a quality relationship with my child. That
is what I am doing with my life right now.
My work life is situated in Youth Organizing in the Deep East.
Trying to upset the setup by engaging the youth I teach and getting
them to upset the setup I work for at the same time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Using a solder gun, playing major and minor scales on my guitar,
general maintenance on my vehicle, house repairs, and cooking my

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My son, cleaning supplies :-), vinyl records, books, vegan treats
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I need to improve on for my son's benefit. How to make more
time to do the things that I want to do.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
ending my day of working with High School youth in deep East
Oakland, organizing students to engage their education and being
patient with my little five year old. Probably making dinner,
bathing my son and reading a book.
When I don't have my child on a Friday night I might be at home
with a movie and dinner or out doing a gallery walk, attending a
community event or chilling at a cafe!

I love licorice and listen to Billy Ocean.
