I am a graduate student in the Deaprtment of Philosophy at the University of Kentucky. My research interests include: the philosophy of science, the philosophy of computer science, the philosophy of technology, scientific explanation, science and values, and artificial intelligence.

I earned my B.S. in sociology from Frostburg State University in western Maryland in 2007. I also had a secondary major in philosophy and a minor in psychology. I earned an M.A. in teaching from Frostburg State University in 2010 and an M.A. in philosophy from the University of Kentucky in 2019.

I have experience teaching English, social studies, and special education at the secondary level. I have also worked in developmental education at the college level, teaching reading and writing skills, mostly to first generation college students.

Outside of philosophy and teaching I have a variety of hobbies including camping and hiking, photography, playing guitar, motorcycling, amateur radio, and computer programming.
