What I do

1.Graduate Student in Philosophy

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.

2.Law Practice

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.

3.The Rest of Life

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!
