What I’m doing with my life
Docente e investigador gringo en una universidad quiteña
I’m really good at
historia del cine. ask me anything!
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, I am pretty tall, 6'3". I reckon that's it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books and articles about Latin American media (that's the area of
my dissertation.) But I adore the novels of Gabriel García Márquez,
Albert Camus, Alejo Carpentier, Henry Miller, Upton Sinclair, Mark
Twain, and many more. I love too many movies so I can't pick a
favorite. But one that I saw recently and love is Miracle in Milan.
I love the films of Luis Buñuel. I like my art to be dreamy and
political. As for music, I like a lot of Latin music: cumbia,
reggaetón, vallenato, merengue, etc. And for food, well, it's all
relative. Around here, I love Mexican food. But when I'm in NYC, I
like pizza. I like arepas, but they're hard to find in the U.S.
The six things I could never do without
literature, cinema, whiskey, music, running shoes, and newspapers.
I spend a lot of time thinking about

going. But I also like to think about what can be done.
On a typical Friday night I am
Every Friday is different. You might catch me reading a book or
watching an NBA game. But I'm flexible.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i don't like the Grateful Dead.
You should message me if
you'd like to converse.
