My Story

When I was 16 my perspective towards life was horrendous. I had always been what you would consider a "happy kid" but as I entered high school I dealt with being bullied, not being able to form meaningful social relationships, and had a home life that just added to my stress and negativity. I had made it through the pandemic but as society reopened my thoughts continued to spiral into a very dark space. Sitting in my room one night pondering why I was on this planet and if I had a true calling in life I thought to myself "this can't be the way" and committed to finding a healthy way to deal my problems. As an avid reader, my first place to look was the local public library where I came across Marcus Aurelius's "Meditations". It was the simplistic message that throughout all of the pain and suffering that is an inevitable part of life we still hold the power to choose how we let these events impact us that I realized I had connected with a way of thinking that would pull me out of the cesspool of darkness I found myself in. Every day since I have committed to growing on a personal level by reading Marcus Aurelius, Seneca, Epictetus, Viktor Frankl, and many more philosophers(Stoics and other schools of philosophy) and applying their principles to any situation life throws at me. This journey has instilled something truly greater within myself and by sharing my journey initially with Mateo, I realized this simplistic message is something everyone our age needs to hear. We live in an age where despair over the future seems to be more popular than present determination, pleasure seems to get priority over purpose, hatred more prominent than love, all in a continuous cycle that serves to destroy society's journey of self-discovery rather than aid it. Since the day my fingers touched Meditations I have pledged to myself that I will spend my life using the lesson of "this is not the way" to teach others what it means to be fulfilled, purpose-driven, and at the end of the day, Stoic.

Things I'm passionate about discussing

Philosophy and The Pursuit Of Knowledge: 

From the time I wake up to the time my head hits the pillow at the end of the day my fuel is truly the pursuit of knowledge and what it means to be the best version of yourself. I am most well-versed in the academics of Stoicism but I also love to read teachings from Buddhism, Taoism, Existentialism, and anything else I can get my hands on. My belief is that these teachings are what can inform us on becoming the best version of ourselves and I enjoy discussing any principle you can think of and how we can translate this ancient information into the modern era in service of others discovering their purpose in the same way many in the past have and will continue to do for many years to come. 

Politics and Economics:

I credit my mother for involving me in political discussions at a very early age and bestowing the maturity to research and formulate political opinions in a logical and open way from day 1. This avid passion for politics really blossomed throughout my Speech and Debate experience in high school where there was a realization of the value of being "over informed" when it comes to political issues. I believe that philosophy and politics go hand in hand, if one uses philosophy to discover themselves and what makes a good, morally upstanding person then in turn they can create policies that advocate for these same qualities and opportunities to grow within society. 

Holistic Well-Being: 

Just as a plant may not grow fully if we are only concerned with watering it and neglect to protect it in bad weather or unforeseen circumstances, you will not find true happiness unless every part of your being is taken care of and prepared for anything life throws at you. I am a big believer of taking care of your physical health through exercise, mental health through positive self-talk and coaching your mindset to a superior place, emotional health by building self-awareness, and spirituality by subscribing to something bigger than yourself(for me this is philosophy but others find community in a large range of things). I would be ecstatic to talk about any of these facets of life individually and how they combine to create an unconquerable version of yourself.
