Joshua Cruz is a recent doctoral graduate of Arizona State University, hired as a qualitative methodologist at Texas Tech's College of Education. His academic interests include innovations in qualitative research, theory of all kinds, college student transitions, and writing studies. Some of his personal interests also collide with his research interests, including capoeira, circus arts (particularly fire play), and various disciplines of movement. Those hobbies which he would never even think of studying are cooking, guitar, and Disney; he would contend that yes, Disney is both a hobby and a way of life, and welcomes lively debate on the topic. He looks forward to experiencing the food scene in Lubbock, and exploring nature in Texas and the surrounding states.
