Hello there! I hope to add a picture here soon to make this more personal. 

I'm currently a doctoral candidate in philosophy at the University of Southern California and live in Los Angeles. Before that, I lived for a few years in Germany where I gained a master's degree in logic and philosophy of science while teaching English as a second language for business purposes. All this came after completing a B.A. in Liberal Arts from St. John's College, Annapolis, where I read and thought about some of these books. My training in the liberal arts and a general awareness that many people have been writing and thinking for thousands of years before me are often in the back of my mind. 

I was born in Pittsburgh and grew up mostly in Beaver, Pennsylvania. In my free time, I enjoy diverse reading and not having to contain my interests. I also enjoy hiking, swimming, traveling, cooking, and trying new foods when I get the chance. I am excited to see what will happen next.
