I have been on faculty since 1999. I teach primarily in the areas of moral and political philosophy. I also teach courses on existentialism and the meaning of life along with human rights. I publish in these areas—both of the more scholarly kind as well as essays in the tradition of Montaigne and other philosophers who employ different ways of thinking and writing philosophically.
