I graduated from the University of Utah in 2011 after working in education for a decade, raising two children as a stay at home father, and returning to seek degrees in philosophy. I now work in value theory and teach ethics and values, intro to philosophy, intro to humanities, intro to ethics, and work as a professional example of what not to do. Despite my deep fear of the eventual take over by AI, I look forward to the short term development that allows a machine to grade all my papers. I am currently concerned with virtue theory, stoic philosophy, ethics and technology, and the Fermi paradox.
