Richard Charles Strong
I was born Portland, Oregon. I spent my formative high school years in rural Pennsylvania. It was while attending university in Chicago that I became passionate about philosophy. After Chicago, I spent a year living in Paris, France. Since 2008 I have lived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Philadelphia's deep contradictions, sites of friction, marks of resilience, unique character, excellent sandwiches, and complex historical entanglements are a continuing influence on my thinking and writing.
