I’m a philosopher at Western Governors University.

I teach courses in Logic and Critical thinking and Ethics in Technology.

I read, think, and write about punishment, emotion, moral responsibility, technology, and related issues. For more, see my Research page.

An extremely brief academic history: I received my BA from St. Louis University, my MA from the University of Cincinnati, and my PhD from The Ohio State University. Before coming to WGU I taught at Northern Michigan University and  UCLA.
