I am the organizer of Philosophy Meets: East and West, a Meetup group in New York City that hosts discussions on topics in analytic philosophy, Eastern philosophy and current affairs.
I also serve on the board of Gotham Philosophical Society, a nonprofit organization devoted to fostering public philosophical dialogue within the New York City community.

I read “Mystery of the Mirror” from Leonard Cohen and Philosophy: Various Positions at the Cornelia Street Cafe. (See below.) Leonard Cohen and Philosophy was recently reviewed in The Hopkins Review <https://muse.jhu.edu/article/615172> and in the CAML Review, the official publications of the Canadian Association of Music Libraries <http://caml.journals.yorku.ca/index.php/caml/article/view/40270>.
