I am a psychiatrist and ethicist affiliated with SUNY Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, NY; and Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston. I write on a variety of cross-disciplinary topics, ranging from mental health to philosophy of mind to spirituality. Most recently, I have authored the novella, "The Late Life Bloom of Rose Rabinowitz;" and the poetry chapbook, "The Myeloma Year." My upcoming book is titled, "Don't Worry – Nothing Will Turn Out All Right!", and is a guide to what I call "opti-pessimism."
