Industry Education
Occupation Professor
Location St Paul, Minnesota
Introduction I am an urban sociologist. I received my MA and PhD from Brown University and my BA from Swarthmore College. I am a second-generation academic, and a first-generation American. "Pinay pa rin" means "still Pinay"--a gesture to my Filipina origins.
Interests When I am not teaching or grading papers, I study and practice martial arts (tai chi, ba gua, eclectsis kung fu, & nanquan wushu). I also take black and white photographs inspired by the work of Lee Friedlander and Roy de Carava. My girlfriend Sharon and I have two border collie pups: Bella and Bosco.
Favorite Movies Men in Black, Antonia's Line, 2046, Once Upon a Time in China.
Favorite Books Brave New World, My Year of Meats, Out Stealing Horses, The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas
