My steady consumption of philosophical literature began in 1993. After graduating with my M.A. in Communication, I had a prosperous career in mathematical statistics. Along the way, I progressed from being a senior statistician to a vice president of analytics, an officer at one of our largest financial institutions.

Through the years, I continued to learn more about mathematics, statistics, and logic, and studied philosophy on the side as a hobby. Despite my blossoming career as a statistician, I questioned if I was content to conduct analytics to the profit of corporate giants, without helping people. This, along with my years of philosophical pursuits, led me to the realization that analytic philosophy can be used to help others. More specifically, I use analytic logic, not mathematical logic.

Usually analytic philosophy and philosophical counseling do not co-occur. I refer to this as an Analytic Philosophy of Life (APOL). I have been writing a technical book on the subject for a few years now, though it is a slow-going pursuit due to the technical nature of the material, and I am being thorough with it rather than rushing toward publication.

Putting it all together, I have a long history with communication, philosophy, logic, and analytics in general; more importantly, and I am easy to talk to and enjoy using analytical skills to help others because reason benefits.

“Every error involves a contradiction. For since he who is in error does not wish to err, but to be right, it is clear that he is not doing what he wishes. For what does the thief wish to achieve? His own interest. Therefore, if thievery is against his interest, he is not doing what he wishes. Now every rational soul is by nature offended by contradiction; and so, as long as a person does not understand that they are involved in contradiction, there is nothing to prevent them from doing contradictory things, but when they have come to understand the contradiction, they must of necessity abandon and avoid it, just as a bitter necessity compels a person to renounce the false when they perceive that it is false; but as long as the falsehood does not appear, they assent to it as the truth.” — Epictetus, Discourses, 2.26.1-3
