The Professional Me

Recently tenured in 2014, I am an Associate Professor of Literacy Studies in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at The University of Texas at Arlington.

The Personal Me

I am a true child of the 80’s and a “Gen-X-er”, born in 1973; I am from many contrasting places. Born in Austin, Texas, I grew up in the wilderness of Alaska (Kodiak Island, Fairbanks, and Anchorage) as well as Southern California (the borderlands of San Diego) and the gorgeous peacefulness of Santa Barbara. I have called Texas home for fourteen years. I am an identical twin, am left-handed, and am  “right-brained” and a “global thinker”. Goals include learning more about professional digital photography, singing lessons, and learning how to properly dance.

When I am not working, I can often be found on my laptop and/or listening to various sub-genres of Electronic music.

My favorite genres and sub-genres of electronic music are in this rank order:Trance (uplifting trance, progressive trance, anthem trance, vocal trance, dream trance), House, Downtempo/Trip hop, Industrial (EBM, aggrotech, synthpop, futurepop), darkwave/ambient/4AD, Breakbeat, and generally Dance (Eurodance  and 80’s new wave/new romantic sounds in particular). I like most anything that intersects with trance.

I am fascinated by style and fashion that is inspired by the gothic/industrial scene including cybergoth (industrial inspired) and steampunk (reminiscent of the Victorian era).

My favorite trance DJ’s are Armin van Buuren, and Markus Schulz. I pretty much only listen to trance these days.
