About Alec

About Alec
I have two MAs in philosophy, and a lifelong passion for knowledge. When I'm not teaching ethics, I am a working graphic designer, and a jazz guitarist.

Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
I have taught philosophy at the Community College of Vermont since 2012, as well as teaching graphic design at Burlington College (2012-2016), and jazz guitar at University of Vermont (2019-present). I was a teaching assistant and instructor at University of Maryland for five years, where I went to grad school in philosophy. Back in the distant past, I tutored SAT and GRE prep, and taught for a year at a private high school in Maryland.
