Trois passions, simple mais extrêmement important: la nostalgie de l'amour, la recherche du savoir, et la pitié insupportable pour les souffrances de l'humanité.
I am a journalist, teacher, and documentary film maker. I enjoy being honest, sarcastic, being silly, discussing politics, economics, and sociology theories, making people laugh.

Check out my current project on the history of police misconduct in Chicago, which is being mentored by Kartemquin Films Diverse Voices in Docs program:
I am of mixed heritage. Filipino-American, which I was raised as, and Italian American. I am first an American but I take pride in having some knowledge, even though it is small about my ancestry. Here are two traditional dances from the Philippines where my mother is from and Sicily, where my great grandfather is from.

Same dance, blindfolded and twice as fast as the last one: http://www.youtube.com/user/kapwacultural#p/u/3/7rsd8UyoAjc

All you need is love :)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Hosted and surfed. I plan to meet more surfers for coffee or showing them around from my lovely city of Chicago :)
In these times, it can be difficult to believe there are good people in this world. Couchsurfing is a reminder that there are in fact good people walking amongst us everyday. CS will save your life! When you cannot travel let the world come to you as they say.
Music, Movies, and Books
What is the point of giving away too much information when it is more fun to show you the kind of music I like.
