I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Texas Tech University.  I was previously a Junior Faculty Fellow at the Georgetown Institute for the Study of Markets and Ethics in the McDonough School of Business, and a Postdoctoral Research Fellow and Lecturer in the Philosophy Department at the University of Michigan.

I work in political, legal, and moral philosophy, and especially on state legitimacy, special obligations, and social morality. My work has been published in Philosophy & Public Affairs, Legal Theory, Pacific Philosophical QuarterlyRatio, and Journal of Moral Philosophy.

My first book, Grandstanding: The Use and Abuse of Moral Talk (coauthored with Brandon Warmke), is forthcoming in May 2020 with Oxford University Press. Also with Warmke, a second book, Why It's OK to Mind Your Own Business, is under contract with Routledge, and will be published as part of their new series “Why It’s OK: The Ethics of How We Live.”
