I completed the Philosophy PhD program at The Ohio State University, where I wrote a dissertation on the theory of right action in virtue ethics. I did my undergraduate work at The University of Pittsburgh in physics and philosophy. At the moment, I am teaching classes at Ohio State and the Columbus College of Art and Design. I am also currently Executive Director of the Maximin Project, a non-profit organization working to eradicate extreme global poverty by mobilizing a new generation of donors. Once upon a time, I was the founder of the (now defunct) Amiable Association of Articulate Atheists, Agnostics, and Adherents, a community discussion group dedicated to promoting philosophically rigorous (but friendly) conversations about religion. Additional areas of philosophical interest to me include other flavors of ethics (bioethics, metaethics, etc.), the philosophy of religion, social/political philosophy, and aesthetics. If I am not careful, I sometimes get interested in the philosophy of time, quantum mechanics, and mind, but I find them all too deeply puzzling to worry about all the time.
