I am a proud native of West Virginia who used to call Texas home before moving to Los Angeles. I'm a director of communications at Loyola Marymount University, and was once a college professor and photojournalist. I like sports and exercise (cycling, soccer, yoga). I don't eat meat and I like good cocktails. I have tattoos of John Brown and Booker T. Washington. I listen to a lot of Gram Parsons and Guided By Voices. My girlfriend is rad, and so is our dog.
