Hi, I’m Alexander Pasch, a native of Austin, TX, USA.
I graduated with a B.S. in Neuroscience (2019) and a B.A. in Philosophy (2021) from UT Austin. I have worked as a private tutor in all subjects for students since 2019 with a focus on scheduling, long-term goal setting, and core math skills. I worked for a year as a post-bacc researcher studying mindfulness based attention training with Finding Focus, a joint partnership between UT Austin and UC Santa Barbara. Currently, I am a consultant with NetSuite, a branch of Oracle.
Beyond this, I like thinking about long-term political and cultural trends, self-improvement, attention, moral philosophy, and effective altruism.
On this blog I like to write about books, self-improvement, philosophy, economic and business topics, and other random ideas I have.
You’ll find regular posts published in the following categories:
- Book Reviews
- Ideas about Philosophy and Self Improvement
- Other miscellaneous posts. For example, a look at where I fit in with college graduates.
