AJ has been described as a graceful, adjusted identity culled from the rotting corpse of southern california junk culture. He also teaches media arts and social media at the MAD Academy at Santa Barbara High School. AJ is a giant nerd but he'll try not to dork up the vibe.

We are living in a world with more and more migration. A world becoming more interconnected and global. Does anyone really desire living in a place with walled off communities? We need to be paying more attention to creating communities that are culturally and socially sustainable. Can we make our diversity a community resource that builds strength and resilience, rather than fear?
