I am currently a senior lecturer at The Ohio State University where I teach on a variety of topics including: ethics, the philosophy of religion, Asian philosophy, and the philosophy of art. I also serve as Executive Director of the Maximin Project, a non-profit organization working to eradicate extreme global poverty by mobilizing a new generation of donors.
I received my PhD in Philosophy from Ohio State, 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.
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.
