"Art is a philosophical practice and philosophy... is an artistic practice. This is because both art, and philosophy are really species of a common genus whose preoccupation is with the ways we are organized and with the  possibility of reorganizing ourselves ." - Alva Noe

Hello! I am a philosopher and jack-of-all-trades working as a professor at Portland State University. I also do assistant marketing for a few Bay Area startups.

My academic research focuses on Applied Ethics and Political Philosophy--especially as they relate to the issues in feminism, environmentalism and technology.

I enjoy learning about cognitive science and psychology, critical theory, and art history.

My passions include singing barbershop, open water swimming, and attending and promoting live music events.
