I’m a philosophy lecturer at Western Connecticut State University and an MFA-poetry graduate student at Southern Connecticut State University. I did my grad work at UConn where I specialized in analytic epistemology. If you have read Descartes’ Meditations, it’s that sort of thing, only more recent. I love all sorts of questions dealing with the theory and structure of knowledge. While at Western I’ve developed a number of courses—epistemology, philosophy of language, philosophy of death and dying, and Buddhism, to name a few, which I hope to be able to teach in the near future. As an MFA student at Southern I’m busy writing lots of poems, even if Plato in The Republic might relegate this activity to the realm of appearances of appearances.

I have a cat, Purrbasket, who also enjoys many of the same things I do. I can tell by her look of avid contemplation as she lounges on the divan.
