About

Greig Roselli
Everything I do centers around writing, reading, and reaching out through art, letters, ideas, and my uncommon love for café au lait

Contact me about anything related to the humanities and arts and letters. Or if you want to know how to make the best café au lait.


Mini Biography
I grew up in Southern Louisiana and I studied Philosophy and Literature. After I graduated from College I became a Benedictine monk. I left the monastery after six years and became a High School English teacher in New Orleans. I've taught both high school and undergraduate students and I've tutored all ages. Currently, I live in Brooklyn. As a writer, I've written education, philosophy, literature, and general non-fiction copy. I've worked as an educator at the New York Public Library, a Yeshiva teacher in Williamsburg, a Humanities teacher in Harlem, a bus boy in random restaurants, and a library assistant. I've taught both undergraduates, high school and middle schoolers. Currently, I teach at an independent school in Queens.

Education
I graduated with a Master's in Philosophy from the New School for Social Research in May 2012 in New York City. I have a Master's in English from Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, LA. My Bachelor's degree is from both Saint Joseph Seminary College and the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium in Liberal Arts and Philosophy, respectively. 

Recent Publications
I have contributed copy to Noodle, Newslines, LinkedIn, as well as here on my writer's blog. In 2013, I published a collection of essays called Things I Shouldn't Have Said (And Other Faux Pas). In 2012, I gave a paper entitled "Proust and the Problem of the Photographic Image" about modernity and realism in philosophy and the fate of the novel. I was also featured in the Fall 2010 issue of Canon, an interdisciplinary journal for the New School for Social Research in New York City on a piece on wonder, and I contributed a chapter, "Youth, Masculinity and the Shattering of Sight in Snow" in Essays Interpreting the Writings of Novelist Orhan Pamuk: The Turkish Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, by Nilgün Anadolu-Okur published by the Mellen Press in June 2009.
