I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Philosophy at Western Michigan University. I received my Ph.D.  at the University of California, San Diego.

My research interests include: ethics (all flavors), moral & philosophical psychology, and metaphysics. In my recent work, I've been particularly interested in questions at the intersection of the philosophy of emotion and ethical theory.

I grew up in the Washington, DC area and went to college at the University of Virginia. Before returning to school to study philosophy, I spent three years working in finance in New York City. when not thinking about philosophy, I like to be doing something outside--hiking, camping, rock climbing, fly fishing, cycling--or something in the kitchen--cooking or brewing beer.
