Originally planning on becoming a juvenile psychologist, Alex graduated from UC Davis with an AB in psychology and philosophy. After some years managing a small business, Alex came to CU Boulder where he earned his MA in philosophy, and is now working towards his PhD.
While he's mostly worked in metaphysics in the past, Alex recently became interested in philosophy of sport. While there are many exciting and important issues to be explored, he is currently most interested in issues around doping, the relationship between athletics and academics, and getting a better understanding of the nature and value of sport itself.
Outside of philosophy, Alex's main passion is running. He's competed at the HS, NCAA, and post-collegiate level, racing anywhere from 1,500m to the marathon.
