Birthday Jan 01  
About Me Well, I am paid to teach students about anything having to do with religion, philosophy, ethics, environmental ethics, humanities, feminist issues, etc. I like opening people up to new ideas and hopefully helping them to be more tolerant of people with different views. I also teach yoga a bit.

I am generally considered a friendly, outgoing, conscientious person. I used to be quite shy, but being in front of people all day and having to entertain them while I teach has gotten me over any shyness I once had.

I have been a vegetarian for about 7 years (almost 12 years without red meat). I have just went up cheese is incredibly difficult...but it seems the healthier my eating habits become, the more pure my body wants it's food and cheese makes it decidedly unhappy. I care about my family, my friends, the environment, animal rights, and human rights. I am passionate about music and art. I have been obsessed with graphic design, photography and painting (oil, watercolor and Japanese Sumi-e) and with learning the guitar. I wish I had a beautiful singing voice. I have tattoos. I believe Hume was right when he said that art was instrumental in attaining knowledge about Ultimate Truth; I think music especially has an incredible power to unify. I believe in the beauty of love.
