Welcome! I am a philosopher in Birmingham, Alabama. I currently teach full time at Birmingham-Southern College where I am the Pre-Law advisor and coordinator of the Philosophy, History, & Law program. I also serve as organizer for the Alabama Region of the National High School Ethics Bowl.

I have an MA in philosophy from Northern Illinois University and a PhD from the University of Virginia. Over the past decade I have taught dozens of courses on topics like biomedical ethics, logic, environmental justice, ancient Greek and Chinese philosophy, and theories of race, gender, and disability. My research focuses on the ethical implications of expressive behavior. For more information about my research, teaching, and consulting, feel free to have a look around this website!

In my spare time I enjoy playing tabletop games, hiking, rescuing kittens, and singing with the parish choir at St. Mary’s on the Highlands in downtown Birmingham. While in Virginia I was a member of the Zephyrus early music vocal ensemble.
