"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 who most recently taught as professor at Portland State University. Currently, I am the University Program Director for a blockchain accelerator. I work with student blockchain organizations to help connect them with funds, resources, and networking opportunitites.

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

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

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