I am an assistant professor in the Department of Communication at the University of California, San Diego and a documentary artist. This is my CV.
I am proud founding member and now member of the Board of Directors of the AjA Project, an amazing non-profit dedicated empowering youth in historically disadvantaged communities in the San Diego/Tijuana region.
I dream of opening a Bob Dylan karaoke bar — imaginatively conceived — on the US-Mexico border.
I root for the 76ers and Eagles of my hometown, Philadelphia.
The most meaningful labor I've engaged in was coordinating a campaign to free my brother and two of his friends from their unjust detention in Iran.
