I am a native of Southern California but currently reside in Minneapolis, MN with my beautiful wife and dog. I am a doctoral candidate in Sociology at the University of Minnesota. I specialize in the fields of im/migration and race/class/gender. I enjoy doing both indoor and outdoor activities during my free time. Indoor activities include reading, watching movies, and playing video games. Outdoor activities are: biking, playing tennis, hiking, goofing around with the dog. I enjoy traveling and really getting to know all that a city or region has to offer. I also love to eat!
