I live and work in New York City and Los Angeles where I teach in the Communication Department at Cal Poly Pomona. I studied Studio Art, Communications, and Sociology at universities in Massachusetts, New Mexico, Oregon and New York City. My general interests are in the evolution of identity in people and place, and ideological migrations.

My most recent book, A Habit of Self Deceit, is available here. My first book, The Michael Jacksons, is an ethnographic monograph on the subculture of Michael Jackson representers in the United States, is available here
