I’m a white, gay, HIV positive, male native of northern California and currently (Spring 2014) a student of Sociology with a quantitative research focus. Currently I work with student organizations to provide assistance with campus policies, paperwork, and resources, leadership education, and serve as the area IT technician for the campus office of Student Life and Leadership.
I also present in college classrooms on issues of Queer and HIV Positive identities.My interests include reading, writing poetry and short stories, video games, biking, nature photography, playing the piano badly, and cooking. I am a member of the Christian Church, Disciples of Christ and a friend of Bill W.’s. I was accepted to this project literally days before filming was to start.
Participating in this film has been important to me because I believe that race and racially motivated behaviors are still present today. The conversation around those issues needs to continue if our society is to progress to something we wish our children to live in.
