I'm a Visiting Instructor at University of South Florida, where I earned my PhD in Philosophy in 2019. My Master's thesis interrogated Hegel and Levinas on love and metaphysics; my PhD dissertation read Nietzsche against Heidegger and more contemporary figures. I've taught philosophy, ethics, humanities, religion, and arts at Carnegie Mellon University, Valencia College, Rollins College, University of South Florida, Hillsborough Community College, St. Petersburg College, University of Cincinnati (in Berlin), and King High School. I've translated Alain Badiou from the French on Heidegger, Parmenides, and Metaphysics. I co-executive direct the Tampa Bay Underground Film Festival. In my free time, I walk along or paddle the Hillsborough River or play my bass guitar through an amplifier. My research interests explore issues like nature, death, technology, biology, and art, through their intersections with 19th and 20th century continental philosophical thinkers.
