I was born and raised in Ohio. I am a lifelong Catholic who has long had an interest in the big questions of life. I've always had an interest in Religion and Science, so it was no wonder why I was captivated by Philosophy when I discovered the discipline graduated from the University of Toledo in 2001 with a BA in International Relations. I also married my soul-mate, Jen in 2001 and we moved to Japan for 3 years after our wedding. We both taught English in rural Tanigumi-mura village, and traveled all over East Asia. Upon returning to the US, we relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area which we love. I recently earned my Master's Degree in Education from AIU On-line. I currently am employed as a tutor and as a receptionist. I am a Christian Platonist. (I am not a Neo-Platonist). I believe that Plato's work is very compatible with Christianity. I also like Aristotle as well. I am very interested in Progressive politics and am a member of the Democratic party, although I'm not currently very pleased with my party.
When you hesitate before hitting snooze on your alarm clock, are you being lazy?
Yes - I'm always quick to do the important things - like hit the snoose bar on my clock!
