I am Bharath Vallabha. I was born in Hyderabad, India, and moved with my family to New York when I was 11. I studied philosophy at Cornell from 1995-1999, at Harvard from 1999-2008 and for three years I was an assistant professor at Bryn Mawr College. In 2011 I left the academic position to pursue philosophy from outside academia. I currently work as a production supervisor at an accounting firm in Bethesda, MD.
