Since 2007, I work in the Philosophy Department at University of Alabama in Huntsville. I hail from a former coal mining town in Western Pennsylvania and, earlier in my childhood, from the east side of Baltimore.

Prior to becoming a philosopher, I proofread for a medical transcription company, clerked and audited at a hotel, and coached high school soccer.

I am married to Holly Jones, a professor of ethnic American literature, and together we are raising our son Dorion. We have had our 15 minutes of fame, and we don't know whether we'll get the Ultra Violet bonus minute.

Occasionally, I think fondly about how useless my discipline is.
