Dr. Baker was born in Dallas, TX, and lived in and around the Dallas area until 1993. He then moved to Detroit Michigan to pursue post-graduate studies in philosophy. Dr. Baker joined the Stockdale Center for Ethical Leadership in 2006.
At the Center he functions as webmaster, coaches the Ethics Bowl team, and is a member of the team that produces our interactive ethics simulations, and interactive electronic ethics and leadership volumes such as Ethics for the Junior Officer.
Each year he also teaches the course "Philosophy at the Movies". Before moving to Maryland, he spent 10 years in Michigan, teaching at the University of Michigan Dearborn, Wayne State University, Oakland University, Schoolcraft Community College, and Mid-Michigan Community College.
He earned his B.A. from the University of Texas at Arlington in 1992 and his Ph.D. in 1999 from Wayne State University in Detroit Michigan. Aside from teaching philosophy at the University and College levels, he also spent 3 years teaching writing and computer skills at the Methodist Children's Home Society group home in Detroit Michigan.
Before that, he taught Middle and High School level English, History and Government at the International Academy of Flint charter school located in Flint Michigan. He also ran a philosophy club at that institution.
Although a native Texan, Dr. Baker considers the Detroit area to be a second home and is a diehard Red Wings, Pistons, Tigers, and Lions fan. (Of course it goes without saying that he is a huge Navy fan! Fear the Goat.)
