I'm Ricky, a PhD candidate in philosophy at Indiana University.

I primarily work in ethics and moral philosophy, and I'm dissertating on well-being and assholes. Lately I've been thinking a lot about what human flourishing looks like as AI transforms our relationships to work and play.

I also have interests in social and political philosophy, public philosophy, aesthetics, and philosophy of games and sports.

In my free time, I love science fiction, board games, screenwriting, art, jazz, and playing, watching, and coaching basketball.

I'm the creator of The SlamBall Card Game.

Let's play sometime!
