About the Writer

29680847_355991038237248_769051551_o.jpgMy research interests are wide and include philosophy from modal logic and possible worlds to questions about time and personal identity; existentialism; Russian literature;  the history of mental illness and specifically how manic-depressive disorder relates to creativity; and mysticism.

Philosophical influences include the Roman Stoics, Seneca, and Marcus Aurelius; David Lewis; and the existentialist philosophers Kierkegaard, Ortega, Sartre, and Nietzsche.

I also enjoy the American novelists Steinbeck, Hemingway, and Dick; Transcendentalist writer Emerson;  the poetry of Poe and Blake; Russian short stories of Chekhov; and the existentialist writers Camus and Kafka.

Currently I’m focusing on a full-length book project in a mixed-genre of philosophy and science-fiction.  Short stories and sketches, poetry and aphorisms, and philosophical ruminations are also apart of my writer’s repertoire.

Before writing full-time, I taught in the Central Valley of California and was a Teacher Consultant for a National Writing Project site.
