About Me

Greig Roselli
Everything I do centers around writing, reading, and reaching out through art, letters, ideas, and my especial love for café au lait. I also make a mean potato salad.

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 - my first full-time job! In the intervening years, I've taught both high school and undergraduate students, and I've tutored all ages. Currently, I live in New York City. 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 busboy in casual restaurants, and a library assistant. I've taught both undergraduates, high school, and middle schoolers, and I've created dozens of educational resources. Currently, I teach multiple subjects (including English, Ethics, and ESL) 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 degree 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 NoodleNewslinesTeachers Pay Teachers, and LinkedIn, as well as here on my writer's blog. In 2013, I self-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 Magazine, an interdisciplinary journal for the New School for Social Research in New York for a piece on wonder. 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.
