Karma: 258

I write about ideas and re­sources I like, along with some ideas for mak­ing con­cepts more clear to me and oth­ers who come from a hu­man­i­ties back­ground but are dig­ging into the tools EA gives us to build stuff we care about.

I got in­ter­ested in EA via GiveWell when it started and got a bit more in­volved in EA when 80K started. I as­cribe to the “keep your iden­tity small” idea and see EA as a re­ally use­ful set of tools and im­por­tant ques­tions, though not the only set of tools and im­por­tant ques­tions some­one might con­sider when do­ing good. I’m a mem­ber of EA DC.

I’m also a Com­mu­nity Li­ai­son at CEA (www.cen­tre­fore­ffec­tivealtru­ism.org/​team)

Out­side of EA, I’m in­volved in the Deaf com­mu­nity and in­ter­pret­ing field/​higher ed. I’m gen­er­ally in­ter­ested in how peo­ple learn what they learn, how they we effec­tively re­late to our­selves and each other, and how to ap­ply those ideas to men­tor­ing and re­solv­ing con­flict. Fun things = acro-yoga, cross fit, 1:1 con­ver­sa­tions about ideas, read­ing while lay­ing in ham­mocks, scuba
