My self-summary
I'm in graduate school.
I study social movements, art history, comparative literature, folklore, rhetoric and philosophy, particularly drawing on Deleuze and Nietzche.

I spent most of my life traveling around the world. I like to laugh and make other people laugh.

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 various situations.
Like, I am into movies and hiking, but I never find the time to do either.
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
I am a graduate student at Madison, Wisconsin. I spend most of my time reading lots and lots of academic texts. 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 challenge.

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
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 this rule.
I like planning trips.
The first things people usually notice about me
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.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I got sooo many! I will update this sooner than later.
The six things I could never do without
1. Gym
2. Phone
3. Books
4. Computer
5. Jeans
I spend a lot of time thinking about
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 study.

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
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 some wine at my side.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
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 I find to share my private world. So, ask away.....
