I've spent most of my adult life in academia, studying, writing and teaching stuff like business ethics, world religions, philosophy of religion, and political theory. All of these areas are within what's called "practical philosophy"--the subfields of philosophy that are most relevant to our daily lives as well as our institutions and systems. While still in school, I took some film studies courses (concentrating on film narrative). Now that I have no desire to continue writing for small numbers of scholars and have left academia, I am writing for the general readership (fiction as well as nonfiction). I have written a screenplay that revolves around the financial-ethics-flux during the financial crisis, and I would like to write more stories that are entertaining but are not superficial from the standpoint of the areas of practical philosophy that I have studied.
