I’m Devin, I met Nick through Rochester Institute of Technology’s Effective Altruism club. Many of my posts are edited versions of rants I previously posted on the club’s Discord. I have a BAAS in Physics and Literature and an MA in English, but mostly I write about philosophy. Currently I’m working on an MA in Bioethics.
