I'm Peter Saint-Andre, a.k.a. stpeter.
I'm a former technologist, having worked from 1996 to 2022 on Internet infrastructure and applications, most recently at Mozilla.
I'm a philosopher, having written books about Nietzsche, Thoreau, Epicurus, and Rand. Currently I'm working on an epitome of Aristotle's views on human flourishing and a dialectical method for philosophical coaching.
I'm a musician, having composed a folk-rock song cycle, extended pieces for solo guitar, a musical setting of the Langston Hughes poem Freedom's Plow, and arrangements of music by Yes for solo electric bass. Currently I'm transcribing the Bach Cello Suites for electric bass.
My online journal is updated regularly. Everything I work on is placed into the public domain and available under source control. I also republish judiciously selected public domain texts via the Monadnock Valley Press. Feel free to contact me if you'd like to have a conversation.
