My experience and interests have ranged from entrepreneurship and business, to teaching, academic writing and research, and sport. After pursuing graduate school in philosophy, I started working on the 2019 Federal campaign in the Halton region, and then for the Ontario PC party. Most of my life has been spent in Southwestern Ontario, though I’ve called both Vancouver and Montreal home for multiple years. My travels have taken me to Denmark for studies, and Korea to teach english. I enjoy the riches and novelty of different cultures, though Canada will always be home.
I have a deep and abiding interest in the intellectual side of things in general, and politics in particular. Trained in Business & Economics (BBA), as well as Philosophy (MA) with a focus on Political theory, I attempt to synthesize insights I’ve gained in these areas to write about cultural and political issues from a philosophical perspective. A constant theme that guides my thinking is the focus on the coherence – both practical and conceptual – of intellectual frameworks, world views, and lifestyles. The assumption being that truth and goodness are not separate from one another but are found together in a coherent whole. It seems to me that a good deal of disagreement and conflict arises from the simultaneous pursuit of interests and values that are difficult, or impossible to balance and realize together in practice.
In a rapidly changing world, it is imperative to think strategically about how to instantiate the structures of governance and forms of life required to maintain a society characterized by ordered liberty.
