Sorry, but I'm not related to CARMEN IBANEZ from STARSHIP TROOPERS, but according to the book her boyfriend, Johnny Rico was a Pinoy and so am I. I'm not related to the IBANEZ Guitar people either.....I heard that they (a Japanese guitar company) actually made up the "European sounding" name to sell more guitars. But enough personal stuff. You came here to see all the really cool stuff I likes to do during the few seconds of free time allowed each week when I'm NOT teaching at LMU or at community meetings or running around at work ................ so here you go: (please be patient if you gotts a SLOW connection)

About Me - the fine print

Florante Peter Ibanez has been “involved” since his early college days. At Cal State University Dominguez Hills he served as their Student Association - Director of Draft Counseling and Peace Education under their Community Services Division. He was an early participant with Search to Involve Pilipino Americans (SIPA) and worked at the UCLA Asian American Studies Center in the early 1970s, helped co-found UCLA Samahang Pilipino and later graduated from UC Irvine with a BA in Comparative Cultures and also co-founded UCI Kababayan. As their representative to the Third World Student Coalition he helped push for the creation of the UCI Cross Cultural Center. While a UCI student he also became an activist of the Union of Democratic Filipinos (KDP) who opposed the Marcos Dictatorship in the Philippines and called for social change in the U.S. Florante has been an AFSCME (AFL/CIO) labor organizer, Lions Club president, AIDSRide cyclist, musician, City of Carson Environmental Commissioner, hula dancer, computer technician, photographer, and in 2006 graduated from the UCLA Joint MLIS/MA Program in Information Science and Asian American Studies to emerge as a Librarian with a specialization in archival studies. He previously served on the board of SIPA and currently serves on the board of Fil-Am ARTS. He has worked at Loyola Law School for the past 18 years and is currently their Manager of Library Computer Services. He is also an adjunct professor of Asian Pacific American Studies at Loyola Marymount University. Florante also serves on the planning steering committee of the Joint Conference of Librarians of Color (JCLC 2012) as the representative of the Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association (APALA) where he holds office as their Vice President/President Elect. He is supported by his life partner/spouse Roselyn Estepa Ibanez and they have raised two daughters, Gabriela Ibanez Nguyenphuoc and Mikaela Estepa Ibanez.
