About my studies:
Of the five concentrations that the program offers, I am in the American Politics concentration. Reflecting my interest in ethics and politics as well as my background in psychology (BA and MA), I also study moral psychology and political psychology. More specifically, I study ideology and partisanship.
I grew up in a blue-collar household in the suburbs of Long Island but, for the decade prior to moving to Arizona, NYC was my home. While in NYC, I worked as a public safety officer at the Javits Convention Center (2011 - 2015), and most recently as a teacher at the daycare center of Rockefeller Center (2016 - 2019). I currently teach American National Government. In my free-time, I enjoy cooking, movies, playing my guitar, exercising, and hiking (but more often lounging) with my recently adopted shelter mongrel.
