I began my educational quest with my heart and mind set on economics, or more accurately, set on making money on Wall Street. After some transformative experiences, I started studying philosophy and fell deeply in with Buddhism and other Eastern philosophical traditions, as well as Plato's work and some other pieces of the Western canon.
I stuck around the University for a go at a Master's degree. I assembled my own degree through a Liberal Studies format, with a focus on peace and reconciliation studies as well as more philosophy. I wrote my thesis on Karl Marx's ideas of alienation and commodification as applied to our world today, with a reccommendation of applying engaged Buddhist ethics and practices as a path of reconciling the many issues of our time.
As a graduate, I continue my studies of economics, sociology, philosophy, politics, spirituality, and the like with the interest of gaining further understanding and ability to contribute clarity and goodness through my works.
Past Employment :
I've done nothing in my past employment that I would frame as "me", or representative of my career. My last job was as a barista in a specialty coffee shop. I love cafes, but unfortunately, have fallen allergic to coffee, which truly is a tragedy that I'd rather not talk about.
At the present I am glad to say I am a writer, ready to write, for you.
Thank you for being here. I am an illustrious writer with a dignified future in my back pocket. Really, I enjoy learning, exploring ideas that intrigue me, and reaching greater understanding of the social, political, economic, spiritual and other dynamics of what we know as our reality. I believe that in order to live a full life one must explore one's purpose and work with it until it is aligned with the uplift and further evolution of life. I am on the path of seeking and tweaking, living and learning, loving and writing academic papers that I find interesting.
