I was born in Goldsboro, NC and raised in 5 different spots in the US. My interest in philosophy developed in high school when I read Persig, Camus, and Gandhi. Later, between my undergraduate and graduate studies, I began reading Wittgenstein and my who view of the field changed forever. I've devoted myself to understanding his work ever since.
