His 12 interests
in his own words...
I am a former public school teacher, who is currently seeking a doctorate in order to continue teaching at a higher level. My concentration is philosophy and cultural theory, which means that those haunting existential questions that forever plague us are my passion. That being said, I think we have to laugh at ourselves every day in order to get this life thing. Comedy and tragedy are two sides of the same coin, just as joy and pain are inextricable parts of a full life. It is really abundance that I am after, a zest in both my interpersonal relationships and my relation to the world in which I participate and perhaps even co-create. This pursuit of more than is reasonable is my response to those tiresome existential wanderings. It is the folly of a romantic, the tenderness of a saint, and the intellectual hope of a scholar that I wish to cultivate. Because life so often has trouble making sense, we must lend ourselves to the interpretive process of reflection. I would very much like someone with whom I can sojourn, someone that wishes to climb the highest of peaks, read the most engaging literature, listen to the most heart-breaking songs, and acknowledge that life is at best a gift to which we are always already called to extend open hands. It is an article of my faith that we are given to ourselves by a mystery that only reveals itself in our giving to others. This "wasteful love" is what gets me up every morning, and it is even what compels me to read people like Immanuel Kant, Martin Heidegger, Jacques Derrida, Jean-Luc Marion, of course Fyodor Dostoevsky.
