I am a professor at the University of Oregon, where I teach and research film and television. I wrote a book on dancing Latina stars in Hollywood.
I am originally from San Antonio, Texas. My husband and I met in Boston at Emerson College, where we both studied film production. We now have two kids and a gentlemanly dog.
I like people and I like to travel. I also like to eat, so my favorite tourist activities tend to revolve around food.
We are used to traveling--from Oregon to Texas to France and beyond--and have gotten pretty good at making ourselves comfortable in a variety of places. We also know how to be good guests--our mamas raised us right!
