I’m an experienced college educator working toward a PhD in Philosophy, Aesthetics, and Art Theory with a focus on Craft Theory. After earning my BA in Liberal Arts from Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY, I went on to earn an MA in Fine Art from the Chelsea College of Arts in London, UK. I'm currently studying at the Institute for Doctoral Studies in the Visual Arts.
I am eager for any teaching opportunities that will allow me to take the wide array of Continental and Analytic philosophies I've been working with and present them to students of all skill levels to help them generate new dynamic forms of thought both within the arts and well beyond them.
Interdisciplinary approaches are key to my research and teaching and I draw upon art history, studio practice, science, popular culture, philosophy, and more to find the best way to uncover and deliver meaningful insights to my students and readers. I’m familiar with various LMS suites, have a high degree of technological proficiency, and come from an varied academic background. I firmly believe in the power of the art and philosophy to improve our lives and I cherish any chance to share this passion with others.
When I'm not working, I enjoy cooking, home brewing, wine, science fiction, traveling, and helping animals with my wife through our local shelters and rescue groups.
