Erly J. Ruiz
Erly J. Ruiz is very academic for the everyday and very everyday for the academic. A Caraqueño—but never a caraquista (e.g., a denizen of Caracas but not a die-hard fan of the Caracas Leones baseball team)— he was born in Barcelona, Anzoátegui, on July 29, 1983. He is a sociologist by profession and a musician by vocation, always attentive to harmony as well as to integration. He currently works as a full-time professor in the Department of Social Theory at the School of Sociology of the Universidad Central de Venezuela.
