I began my study of philosophy in 1985. I have taught at both university and college. I specialize in engaging students to see the importance of philosophic thinking for their lives and careers. I see philosophy as both foundational and practical.

I am the main editor for the postmodern ethics series published by Wipf and Stock in Oregon. The series has published books and collections by internationally recognized scholars.

The Poverty of Radical Orthodoxy, Wipf and Stock, 2012

  • Numerous conference presentations on the major existential and postmodern thinkers in relation to ethics.

In addition to teaching philosophy, I am also a visual artist. My artistic work focuses on landscapes and figurative work. I also train in Yoshinkan Aikido and study a 500-year-old Japanese sword style called Yagyu Shinkage Ryu.
