Biography

I expect to graduate with a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology by Spring 2013.

Somewhat outside of psychology, but still on the periphery, I am also interested in various areas within philosophy, especially in philosophy of mind and the problem of consciousness. Another area where my interests in psychology and philosophy overlap is personal epistemology, as well as the development of rationality and critical thinking.

I also enjoy movies and the filmmaking process, and have dabbled in screenwriting.
