Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I spent most of my life traveling around the world. I like to laugh
and make other people laugh.
I am a PhD student--so I read and write a lot.
I find that pleasure comes from forging alliances through a
personal connection that is about making people feel comfortable as
much as it is about making them feel special. I thrive to build
collective communities. Some people find me to be laid back and not
the one to create dialogue at first. Sometimes I can be a bit
cynical but I believe that it can be useful and productive in
Like, I am into movies and hiking, but I never find the time to do
Because I teach, I would rather spend time shopping for coffee/tea
under the stress of grading.
I am a friend, brother and writer.
I've spent time in relationships; I've spent time not.
Love has always saved me, perhaps in ways I least expected.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spend most of my time reading lots and lots of academic texts. I
study rhetoric and philosophy and art and art history.
--I like fiction, non-fiction and poetry. All this means that I
like narratives -analyzing the ways in which stories/plots develop,
take significant turns, and mobilize us in various directions. I
also like listening to and reading oral histories of people who
embody stories of the past.
--I write, travel and teach. I love learning about things about
which I know nothing at all and so every new project is usually
about something about which I know very little -- but by the end I
know a lot! I'm always looking for the next intellectual
--Some of the traveling I do is oriented around sites of attraction
that speak to not just the politics of location and space, but also
of people and bodies. All of us got a story, right?
Of course, I've found it to be a pleasure to read all the stuff
that I like, in addition to getting funding to do it.
Other things about me:
...I do not follow a script.
I would like to be more structured.
I do not organically create goals. I would rather not know what the
future will hold. By this same logic, I am able to be more
imaginative and action-oriented in the present.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking for elaborate dinner parties, finding my way around distant
lands, listening to those in trouble or need, resolving problems,
surprising people by anticipating what they like, want or need. I'm
also particularly talented at exploring my partner's social and
sexual pleasure -- I like finding out what is desired.
I like jogging and running under the stress of work. Music is my
silent joy. I like to think that I'm a true friend, and sometimes
it is hard for me to let people go.
I cling onto what I desire, what I want, even when it's not good
for me. Ok, that is not good, right? I like listening to others. I
can be a source of empowerment for people who need someone to sort
out their mess. I like cooking and cleaning. However, because of
school, I find myself doing less of this.
I like listening to music and staying in tune with politics.
I find time to work out. Rather imagined, I am well-suited to break
I like planning trips.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Let's see? I would say my hair, smile and clothes. I can be simple;
however, I can be oriented toward the occasion. Get it? this means
that I am adjustable, in-between a state of unpredictable and
predictable behavior, and well-oriented.
So if people notice something about me, it would be that I come
prepared and I got the memo for the occasion. bring the beer? sure.
do I drink beer? not really. bring the baked goods? sure. do I bake
often? not really. Rather stated, I think others notice that I am
all about creating communities, in ways that it becomes less about
me, and more about them.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
6. Ask me______
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
One answer might be the critical embrace of superbad sex objects,
that is, not just the "bad" but also the messy, category-defying
versions of sex and the ways in which it "happens in art," our
embodiment as feeling and thinking critics (sex objects ourselves)
with complexly embedded connections and how we come to be who we
Even more, reading, writing, production, art, aesthetics, sex,
politics are all things I care about: that is, I think about
creating a world where all these things can coexist without
oppression. I'm forever searching/thinking about/wanting the utopia
that is forever out of sight, out of mind, but somewhere and yet
nowhere at the same time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I find that I spend more time at the library than I do at my place.
When I'm not there, I'm out getting drinks with friends. When I'm
not doing that, I'm on the phone with my mother who insist that I
call once a week. If I'm not doing any of these things, I'm
typically planning for the next week --with a pen, pad, and wine at
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The most private thing I'm willing to admit is that I'm private. In
other words, I like socializing but it's rare for me to speak about
my personal life with others, even when they are close. Instead, I
reveal information on a need basis and for me, this is the best way
to share my private world.
So, if you're in need, ask away.....
