Research Interests: My dissertation focuses on American Pragmatism with an emphasis on John Dewey. My research interests broadly range from the history of political thought and critical theory to interpretive methods in archival research and translation. While I enjoy researching, my passion manifests mostly in teaching and perfecting the classroom experience for students of all backgrounds, traditional and nontraditional students alike, to inspire civic engagement, refine critical thinking skills, and provoke self-reflection. At Northwestern, I have assisted in the instruction of political theory, constitutional law, and American government in Political Science and have also assisted in the instruction of Greek mythology in Classics. Apart from academics, I am a professional magician and illusionist, combining insights of phenomenological philosophy, legerdemain, and showmanship to deceive, entertain, and reintroduce mystery to audiences in a world thoroughly known.
