Professor of Philosophy, Mount Holyoke College

Welcome to my website!  It's still in the process of being created, so let me know if you see any problems with it.

The two areas in which I am pursuing active research are philosophy for children and philosophy of film. 

I teach courses in those areas as well as in the history of modern western philosophy, existentialism, and aesthetics. 
Check out my philosophy for children course and website.
