My name is Ryan Cook. I’m a freelance writer, and I moonlight as a fencing instructor. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy, and I’m planning on eventually getting my PhD in philosophy and (hopefully) becoming a professor. My main philosophical interests are ethics and politics/society.
I want to show how philosophy is relevant to the ordinary issues people face living their lives. I can’t think of a better way to do that than to take the issues I’m facing during my time in the private sector and reflecting on them from a philosophical perspective.
Other than philosophy, I love my girlfriend, good beer, a good burger, video games, reading fiction, and Star Wars. In summary, I’m a nerd who wears his heart on his sleeve and enjoys at least a few stereotypically masculine things.
