Philosophy is my passion and is where I plan to build my career. My interests lie in the philosophy of cognitive science and neuroscience, philosophy of law, and moral pyschology. I particularly care about the relevance of cognitive and neuroscience to law.
During 2016 and 2017 I provided legal services to domestic violence survivors on the island of Oahu as an attorney for the Domestic Violence Action Center.
Acquiring novel skills and excercising creativity are essential to cultivating a healthy mind and joyful life. I enjoy the rewards that come from teaching my body and mind to do new things: surfing, music, film-making, whatever looks like fun!
I am currently enrolled as a full time graduate student and serve as a teaching assistant in the philosophy department at FSU.
At DVAC I provided services for survivors and victims of domestic violence. These services consisted of all aspects of divorce and paternity including child custody, child support, alimony, visitation, and property distribution, as well as all matters surrounding Temporary Restraining Orders and Orders for Protection.
At Carolina Skydiving I was responsible for packing parachutes for every student and member of the drop zone staff, maintaining equipment and teaching students how to pack for themselves.
