I was born in Pittsburgh, PA, and I grew up in Columbia, MO. I love traveling, running, watching the Steelers, and spending time with my wife and two dogs. My favorite TV shows are Seinfeld and The Office, and my favorite band is The National.
I got into philosophy when my undergraduate General Chemistry class covered the double-slit experiment. This got me interested in various interpretations of quantum mechanics, and from there my philosophical interests ballooned.
Fun fact: my brother, Kevin Dorst, is also a philosopher.
