My Philifesophy

I coined the term ‘philifesophy to capture how philosophy and life can intersect and influence one another in complex and meaningful ways. My philifesophy is a way of living that centers on continuous reflection, growth, and transformation.

My Philifesophy in Previous Projects:

youtubeThink for a Change™ is a YouTube video project I launched in 2010 to make philosophy accessible to general public audiences. To demonstrate the value of a philosophically informed approach to key issues, I comment on current events by referring to specific texts and arguments. Popular topics include race and racism, gay and transgender identities, homophobia, surviving sexual violence, and the meaning of life. The thumbnail images are also a convenient way to track the development of my many hairstyles over the years.

littlebirdLittle Bird, Poet Tree is the first blog I created in 2009. As I went through graduate school its content shifted from philosophically-informed poetic entries to passionate commentaries on academic philosophy, graduate school, writing, and teaching. Reflections on relationships, identity, death, and vulnerability are also woven throughout. Feel free to browse through the old archives to see how I’ve developed in my own philosophical practice.
