Nick Riggle dropped out of high school to become a pro skater, participating in stunt shows, demos, and world-class competitions (including three ESPN X Games). He has a BA in philosophy from UC Berkeley and a PhD from New York University, America's leading philosophy program; he is currently a philosophy professor at the University of San Diego. He speaks widely at conferences and workshops and co-organized the first major academic conference on the philosophy of street art and graffiti. He continues to publish in notable philosophy journals, as well as more popular outlets, including McSweeney's, Aeon (on the high five, awesomeness, and suckiness), and Hyperallergic. His current academic work focuses on the role of aesthetic value in human life and is supported by a grant from the Experience Project, a $4.8 million, three-year initiative at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Notre Dame.
