Matt Beard

Matt Beard is a philosopher, dad, husband, pop culture nerd and moral philosopher and ethicist. He is the Program Director of the Vincent Fairfax Fellowship at the Cranlana Centre for Ethical Leadership, the resident philosopher on the hit ABC podcast Short & Curly, and author of The Short & Curly Guide to Life and Ethical by Design: Principles for Good Technology. In 2016, Matt won the Australasian Association of Philosophy Prize for his "prolific contribution to public philosophy". Matt takes a very non-traditional view of what a philosopher is, which means on a given day you might find him dressed in a gorilla suit, presenting to a board of directors or creating a thought experiment involving runaway trolleys and superheroes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
