I was born and grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and did my undergrad at Pitt, where I majored in engineering but fell in love with philosophy. Since then, my love affair convinced me to leave a stable job, good pay, and contributing to society for the chance to 'do' philosophy professionally - I know, doesn't make much sense on paper...
Now I'm in the Masters of Philosophy program at the University of Houston ('22-'24)! I'm a full time graduate student and teaching assistant.
I've always been deeply interested in freedom, agency, and responsibility - those questions (in a religious context) were what got me interested in philosophy in the first place! I'm also interested in metaethics and applied ethics, moral psychology, social epistemology, and have recently been exploring existentialism and political philosophy.
