This is both an intellectual and emotional labor of love. I am committed to social justice in all of its forms. I travel to Sicily frequently while immersing myself in the realities of the refugees and immigrants who try to rebuild their lives there. I am an Assistant Professor at Arcadia University in the suburbs of Philadelphia. I chronicle lives and situations. I am an Italian-American. I write things. I dream. I am kind. I am quiet. I am a disciple of Paulo Freire. I love theory. I love practice. I like to live the life of the mind. Occasionally I sit in the sun. But not very often. I hate loud noises. I like to communicate. Write to me. Tell me your thoughts.
