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 partner and our two dogs.
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.
