Bio and Mission

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.

  1. Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and
    I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I
    had to ask!

  5. I read your website quite regulary, especially the texts about movies and TV shows.
    In general, I agree with your assessments,
    but not every time. Some films seem to me not worthy to watch and time spent.

  7. Hi! I realize this is somewhat off-topic however I
    needed to ask. Does operating a well-established blog such as yours require a massive amount
    work? I’m completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my journal on a
    daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my
    personal experience and thoughts online. Please let
    me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
    Thankyou!
