More About Me

Originally from a small Kansas town, I moved to New York (by way of Minneapolis) to obtain a Ph.D. in philosophy and cognitive science. My unbridledly lovely wife and I met while on a special exchange semester in New York. (Tired, I wanted to crawl into the large bag she was carrying. Though she thought the request cute, she turned me down.)

Fifteen years and a boy and a girl later, we still reside in New York. She a powerful attorney, me a significantly less powerful academic at one of those snooty, elite, East Coast universities, where I teach philosophy and academic writing.

Both of our kids arrived early—The Boy two months and the girl one month—and we were thrust into parenthood prematurely. Q and The Boy don't seem to mind, though, which makes pretty much everything easier.

Our extended families and some invaluable friends don’t live anywhere near us, and I keep this blog mainly for them. And writing about my kids helps me to make sense of them, of myself. Sense from senseless—the definition of philosophy.

This will help my daughter write an essay on the desired topic. I advised her to take advantage of this service essays.io and make life easier, but it is stubborn and wants to do it yourself.

Thank you for this post! It is interesting as usual! It is time for me now to write my thesis. And I think it would be better if this writing service https://paidpaper.net/case-study/ help me. Because this is a very responsible moment in my life and I want to write an excellent work.
