I was born in Southern Cal in 1975. I attended elementary school in Mexico (Michoacan); junior high and high school in King City, California, graduating in 1994. I received a Bachelors of Science from the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at San Jose State University in 1998, a Masters in Philosophy from the same place, and a PhD in Philosophy from The University of New Mexico, in Albuquerque, NM, in 2006. I have two sons, Julian Saul and Ismael Pascual--they are both incredibly rad!
My research deals primarily with Latin American philosophy and Hispanics/Latinos in the US. More specifically, a recently published book explores the phenomenology of the Mexican philosopher Jorge Portilla (The Suspension of Seriousness, State University of New York Press, 2012); a book currently under contract with SUNY Press treats of Mexican existentialism more generally; papers in progress, forthcoming, or under review deal with issues in the philosophy of immigration, Latin American philosophy, post-modern conceptions of truth and subjectivity, the work of the Spanish philosopher Jose Ortega y Gasset, and (with several colleagues in other institutions) the possibility of a Mexican-American philosophy (in some instances, these interest intersect).
