San Francisco Corvid College: http://www.corvidcollegesf.com/
One of my oldest passions is xenophilia, more specifically the art of traveling (even if it is in one’s own neighborhood). As such I look to the French anarchist group the Situationists for inspiration and most usually find it. Even though it has been a while since I moved, I still consider Tokyo my home. And you have my word that I will not to subject anyone to slide-shows about my time there.
I co-founded Corvid College in Boston with Dr. Eric Buck and recently moved to San Francisco to open up another branch. Back in Boston, I taught courses on everything from Cyberpunk to Radical Environmentalism to Contemporary Black Magick and am currently researching the work of William S. Burroughs. In terms of academic interests I primarily enjoy discussing religion, Western Esotericism, Occultism, and environmental philosophy/ spirituality (like Deep Ecology and Neo-Paganism). I am also interested in looking further into what has been alternatively termed ‘lifestyle anarchism’ or ‘post-left anarchism’. In terms of non-textual areas of interests, I enjoy Japanese film after 1950, zine making, American-British mod/punk rock, skateboarding films, and horror cinema. I hold a B.A. in Religious Studies from Boston University, a M.A. Hermetic Philosophy from the University of Amsterdam and a M.Div. from Harvard Divinity School.
