I am a Data & Senior Software Engineer at Human Longevity, Inc. I hope my work contributes to the better lives of others. My work involves design, development, testing, and occasionally DevOps tasks. These days I am doing a lot of data modeling and database design for high performance queries. 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 at a .NET shop building web applications and anomalously on an iOS mobile app. These days I am working mostly in Python.
I am a philosopher in the Reformed tradition. My interests are guided by two questions: (1) what is the nature of reality; and (2) what can we know about reality? 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. 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. Some of my gear: The BOSS Katana Artist, Seymour Duncan Dark Sun Delay/Reverb.
