I’m an assistant professor at Northeastern University. Previously, I was an assistant professor at Bowling Green State University. My work focuses on issues in ethics, applied ethics, and philosophy of biology. I was born in upstate New York (Dryden) but spent my formative years in Boston. I attended Northeastern University and graduated in 2006. In 2011 I completed my Ph.D in Philosophy at the University of Wisconsin – Madison.
Outside of philosophy, I love to spend time with Evelyn (my fiancé), our dog Arya, and friends. In 2008 I started bouldering (a form of rock climbing) and spend a lot of time doing that. I enjoy outdoor activities and sports (ultimate frisbee and basketball in particular). I spent a lot of time as an undergraduate playing foosball and played competitively for a bit in grad school. I still enjoy foosball whenever I get the chance to play. I’m also game for good beer and wine.
Someday this website will include a picture of me in deep concentration, but not this day!.
