About me & my work:

I'm trained as a philosopher, but pay the bills as an editor, working closely with experts across the gamut of health, IT, and everything in between. It's good work, that ultimately will save many lives and a great deal of money, albeit in a very abstract way.

In a similarly abstract way, I see philosophy as a very practical enterprise. Corny as it sounds, for quite some time I carried a note from a fortune cookie in my wallet that read "The philosophy of this century is the commonsense of the next." So I find myself captivated by bold, meaty ideas -- right or wrong -- so long as they have some capacity to challenge our concepts of ourselves, the world, and the relationships between the two.
