I grew up in the DC area but am now based in Quito, Ecuador, as a Professor-Researcher of Sociology at the Latin American Faculty for Social Sciences. You can see my university profile at (website hidden).
I have lived and worked in the different parts of the US, in Mexico, the Philippines, Bolivia and South Africa. I love to get to know new places, contexts and people, and am easy-going and respectful. When traveling alone, it is mostly for research or conferences, so am mostly out and/or if at home reading or working on my computer.
