In 2022, I was honored to receive the Alan Bible Excellence in Teaching Award, which is awarded to one recipient annually across UNR’s Colleges of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

I’ve also engaged in pedagogical activities beyond the traditional classroom. At UNC, I convened a weekly undergraduate reading group on Arendt’s Crises of the Republic, in the backroom of a Chinese restaurant. At UT, I helped to run a year-long conference course on Hegel’s Phenomenology for a group of interested undergraduates, and I served as a volunteer mentor to individual undergraduate students, through UT’s pre-graduate school mentorship program.

I also volunteered as an instructor at Eastside Memorial High School in Austin, Texas, through the Corrupt the Youth philosophy outreach program. You can learn more about the program here.

I started a college ethics bowl program at UNR, and have been working to establish a regional high school competition in Nevada as well.
