Hello! I was born and raised in a small farming community in northern California. I attended the University of Southern California in Los Angeles on a full academic scholarship. I graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. in Philosophy and minors in Business Administration and Critical Approaches to Leadership. I worked at a major law firm in Atlanta before moving to Texas to pursue a doctorate in philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin. While there I taught a variety of courses, ranging from Philosophy of Art to Introduction to Ethics to Human Nature. I also worked as a writing coach and manuscript editor. I love helping students achieve their goals through writing.
I earned my Ph.D. in May 2017 and was subsequently promoted to the position of stay-at-home dad, where I spend my days chasing two small children, ages 1 and 3, around a house I SWEAR I just cleaned.
