My self-summary
I graduated from UCI with a B.A in Spanish and a B.A. in Political Science with a minor in Latin American Studies. I love languages and culture. I am half-Mexican and half-dutch. I consider myself culturally Latino. Spanish is really important to me. Its a part of my identity. USA has given my parents and I opportunities their home countries were never able to give them, however USA has serious social, racial and economic issues. Nevertheless, I don't really feel "American". I consider myself more of a global citizen. I am way into cultural studies, and analyzing our global political system, as well as analyzing the roots of structural violence and global poverty.

I love food. I also love cooking, I am no fan of cleaning up.

I have an unhealthy infatuation with classic bollywood. The more Ashaji, Lataji, Kishoreji and Mohammad Rafiji I get into my mind the better.

I LOVE 80's spanish pop. I love to hear "Pobre Secretaria" and "Amante Bandido" whenever possible. I love my samba as well. Os brasilieros é muito gustosos ;D

Likewise anything mambo makes me move. If only I were a women and lived in the 50's to bear Perez Prado's children.

I am tall, dark, and handsome:) lol i wish:/

I would really like to be with someone. Its nice to have someone with you that makes you feel beautiful, someone to cook for, someone to worry about, someone that makes your own existence bearable.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm at school. I'm taking some Child Development classes, and shortly my Masters. I would love to be a bilingual education teacher. I want to save the world. Will I succeed? no. but lets try anyway.I sometimes contemplate creating sustainably made, empowering clothing made for and by people of color. But first, I need to eat. Maslow's hierarchy of needs bro!
I’m really good at
politics and cooking. I thoroughly enjoy pastry making. I am good at making mixed drinks. As well as drank.

speaking spanish, and wasting my life watching "Epoca de Oro" movies and telenovelas...fue sin querer queriendo!!!

wasting life on the internet.

Making the best of what I have
The first things people usually notice about me

Six things I could never do without

yo momma in my bad at night...jk i am if u had a hot dad........
I spend a lot of time thinking about
a lot of inconcrete ideas. Like my own clothing line, if Israel and Palestine were one country...if there where more persian and arab and indian gay men in my area.....

...if i were a fashion designer I would save the world through sustainable cloth and sexy clothing

...if we could just get along...if Israel and Palestine could just be one country

...reclaiming the cultural rights of the global south.

...if I were a super model

...wishing people who label themselves as "latino/hispanic" but don´t speak spanish would either stop labeling themselves as such or learn spanish. "latino/hispanic" is a culture. Not a race.

...being an intactivist and encouraging others to do the same
On a typical Friday night I am
prolly dancing some samba, going out with friends, doing dumb shenanigans, perhaps chatting with friends at Peet's coffee

hating on fair and lovely

improvising indian classical dance to accomodate modern life
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Umm about that. This is quite in the eyes of the beholder.

I am not a virgin! oh no!!!!!

मुझे गोरे नहीं पसंद

I personally think circumcision whether male or female is genital mutilation, so it follows that I am no fan of cut dick. Just being real!
You should message me if
just do it

hamesha tumko chaha lol

you like to eat out. Just saying. I am classy lol. And perhaps if you like kalhua and milk, or amaretto sours, or kanafeh and chai.

if you wanna make a batuque na cozinha but without the burnt feet.
The two of us
