Think Piece seeks to deconstruct business in pursuit of a model that is more sustainable both individually and collectively than our current winner-takes-all extractive paradigm. I’m particularly curious to develop what—if any—role businesses can play as we attempt to have a good, engaging, and generous life in the face of collapse. I believe we need both theory and praxis, and seek to merge higher level philosophy with actual, you know, doing things.

Currently, I’m researching how labor alienation impacts knowledge work entrepreneurs, and am interested in degrowth, the negative implications of longtermism, productivity culture, how historical religion influences modern business, and the future of online education.
