I am a tenured associate professor of philosophy at the University of Minnesota Duluth.  My research focuses on ethics, including virtue ethics and comparative ethics.  I earned my Ph.D. from the University of Notre Dame, where my dissertation was directed by Karl Ameriks & David Solomon.  My B.A. in philosophy is from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I was also once a Philosophy Ph.D. student and co-authored scientific research articles at the Cystic Fibrosis Center.  I also worked as a lab tech in a tissue culture HIV/AIDS research lab at Wake Forest Medical School. I was a fellow in residence at the Institute for Advanced Study in the Twin Cities at the University of Minnesota in 2012 and 2021.  I have also been a visiting scholar at the philosophy departments at the University of Melbourne and UNC-Chapel Hill. I also spent two summers working as an Interpretive National Park Ranger in Idaho
