Having worked in public philosophy as well as doing philosophy with children on a grant from the American Philosophical Association, I have taught philosophy and had philosophical discussions with people from ages 5 to 75. Everyone has philosophical inclinations and needs. I aim to meet people where they are, wherever that may be.
I am a philosopher who has been teaching students for over 10 years. I have published on a variety of subjects and am a translator of German philosophy. I taught at a university full-time for 8 years. I have also tutored students on writing for many years and have helped a number of students get into excellent graduate programs.
