From 2007 to 2013 I taught full time as an adjunct Philosophy instructor, online and face-to-face, for FSCJ, JU, and UNF. I’m scheduled to teach a session of Intro to Applied Ethics for FSCJ in summer 2014.
I hold an M.A. in Practical Philosophy & Applied Ethics from the University of North Florida (UNF), and a B.A. in Humanities from Florida International University (FIU).
It was at FIU in Miami that I first encountered Philosophy as a formal discipline– and it was love at first sight. All my life I’d been told I “think too much”; philosophy showed me how that can be an asset. Now one of my passions is helping others learn how to use philosophy and its methods to improve reasoning, conversations, relationships, and prospects in their own lives.
In my free time I organize and facilitate public philosophy workshops that highlight philosophical topics and methods, and promote critical thinking, active learning, and civility.
