I grew up in the very middle of the United States, in the prairie of Kansas, where I was homeschooled for most of my childhood. My transition to college was somewhat nontraditional, but I eventually landed at the University of Iowa in 2010, where I studied philosophy and ancient civilizations.

In 2014, I moved to Colorado and helped start a local bean-to-bar chocolate shop. I earned a master’s degree in philosophy from Colorado State University in 2018, writing a thesis on Charles Sanders Peirce’s statistical account of the laws of nature.

In 2019, I left the States for Budapest, where I started a PhD in philosophy, but in 2020 I had to come back because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Currently, I live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where I work in philanthropy.

I spend a lot of time thinking about philosophy, artificial intelligence, and sustainability.
