I am a graduate student at the University at Buffalo, working on finishing up my PhD in the Department of Philosophy, with a focus in Environmental Ethics. Aside from the study of philosophy, I have also dabbled in the field of English, receiving a Bachelors and Masters Degree in English Literature (also from the University at Buffalo). I have taught Philosophy and English classes at the college level for a little over five years, in topics covering Logic, Critical Thinking, Ethics, Research and Writing, and Public Speaking. It is something that I enjoy, and am deeply passionate about. I believe that education should be as fun as it is rewarding. If this wasn't the case, I couldn't really see any point in devoting my life to it.
Outside of school and work, I try and get outdoors as much as possible. In the fall and winter months, there is nothing more enjoyable than sitting in a tree stand, reading excerpts from Thoreau, Abbey, and McCarthy, waiting for that trophy buck to walk by. When I'm not hunting, you'll find me on the water, reeling in bass and steelies until my hands grow tired.
