The Meaning of Outlaw Ph.D.

I have had some looks of concern when I mention my brand - Outlaw Ph.D.; however, most have thought it to be a pretty cool moniker.  I would like to take a moment to explain what it actually means.  At the age of 58 (almost 59), I am too old to leverage my Ph.D. for a tenure track faculty position at a college or university, so I am, through my brand, creating my own tenure, thus "Outlaw."  It's that simple, no big backstory.  That said, we plan to do some cutting edge, but tasteful photo shoots for the brand.

What will Outlaw Ph.D. do?  First and foremost a media company to get my words, teachings, and philosophy out to the world.  But, more than that, to contribute to science and education using many different platforms to advance knowledge in a variety of fields. 

And yes, I use the traditional "Ph.D." with periods.  Either way is correct, but I like the old school version better.
