I am a software engineer working in the biotech / precision medicine / genomics domain. I hope my work contributes to the better lives of others. My work involves design, development, testing, and occasionally DevOps tasks typically as a back-end engineer in the data and application layers. Before that I worked specifically as a test automation engineer; I would find ways to break your code to help you build a better product. Before that I worked as a full stack engineer in a .NET shop. I am also working on a side project to help facilitate innovation in the US economy.
I am a philosopher in the Reformed tradition. My interests are guided by three questions: (1) what is the nature of reality; and (2) what can we know about reality; (3) what is required for happiness? This has made me a generalist. But I have spent a significant proportion of my energy attempting to understand the nature of agency and moral responsibility. Like the ancients, I now see the first two questions related to the third. Stylistically, I prefer contemporary analytic philosophy, but I think it is most interesting when done against the background of the history of philosophy.
I am a writer. Most of the time, I write code. When I am not writing code, I write about philosophy, theology, and sometimes on the value of philosophy to the marketplace. Finally, I write music. My jams are all in the range of rock, metal, progressive, and blues.
