Creatively minded and analytically trained, Carson is delighted to be joining Athena’s Creative Agency as a copywriter. Born and raised in Oklahoma, Carson completed his B.A. in Philosophy at The University of Oklahoma with minors in Classics and English Literature before attending Villanova University for an M.A. in English. While pursuing his master’s, he served as a research assistant to his favorite English professor and presided on the editorial board for CONCEPT, the Villanova Graduate Student Journal. Intellectually, he is mainly interested in ethical and aesthetic questions, and he enjoyed serving in leadership roles on student council groups at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
On a personal note, Carson is passionate about poetry, basketball, writing, friends, and family. Exploring Philadelphia – the sports, the arts, coffee, and other forms of community – brings him joy, and he looks forward to becoming more familiar with the city.
