Robert is a Child of Deaf Adults (CODA) with a background in philosophy, accessibility, and middle-eastern politics. He is obsessed with the creation of meaning, the ontology of culture, and learning. He examines human beings and AI through both lens. He wrote a memoir, Song of Myselves (publication pending), built a company providing communication access to the Deaf worldwide, and operates Expanse, a radical alternative to middle school.
Robert co-founded a company that provides interpreting services for the Deaf in the US, Canada, and the Middle East. He has explored the US and Canada through 10,000 miles of train-riding to write a book on having Deaf parents (second book using my train experience forthcoming!) and emphasizes joy and optimism on my Instagram. He also interpret rap songs into American Sign Language for kicks on YouTube! Check it out.
Robert is a 2015 graduate of St. John's College, a liberal arts college where we read the Great Books of the western tradition. If you let him, he'll lecture about Nietzsche for hours. So don't be surprised at his free-form blog, Inorganic Thoughts, where he explore topics he finds interesting.
