Christian holds an Honors Bachelor's degree in Philosophy and Religious Studies and Political Science from Marymount Manhattan College in NYC. He is highly dedicated to the field of Philosophy and is hoping one day to leave a permanent impact on the discipline and the way it is taught. Christian is a well-rounded philosopher whose interests range from Ethics and Political Philosophy to Metaphysics. He is a firm believer in making the world a joyful place, and has a passion for social justice.

Christian has more than six years teaching experience, and have taught anything from kindergarten to college kids. He employs the socratic method when teaching and also a firm believer in the need for learning to be fun. To practice what he preaches, Christian has designed his own philosophy card game, to assist teacher of philosophy, and is currently working on a Philosophy App for Android and Iphone.
Besides being quite studious, Christian also happens to be a competitive break-dancer with the NYC based group 5 Crew Dynasty and has traveled the globe competing, performing, and teaching.

When it comes to teaching Christian believes that learning should be an exploratory journey traveled by the student facilitated by the teacher. Understanding begins with conversation, not lecturing or restating what the textbook says. Learning Philosophy does not deal with memorization or knowing fancy words (although sometimes it can help). Rather Learning philosophy is about understanding arguments, seeing how the world fits together and critically evaluate the many things we so often take for granted. Teaching is about developing critical thinking in the student and fostering independent creativity and work ethic. This comes with an ability to be able to clearly read and decipher texts and arguments and claims.

Christian teaches by conversing with students and demands that they always justify their claims as well as point to the relevant sources from which they are gaining their information. Critical thinking is key, and is developed not only through conversation but also through thought experiments and knowledge games.
