About me

Hello! I’m a Philosophy Instructor at Slippery Rock University. I spent two years as Instructor of Philosophy at Missouri State University. I received my PhD from University of Georgia in 2017, where I taught for five years as an Instructor.

My areas of specialization are Environmental Philosophy, Social and Political Philosophy, Ethics, and Aesthetics. My areas of competency are Feminist Philosophy, Philosophy of Race, and Philosophy of Technology.

I have published articles in Environmental Ethics, the Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism, and the Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics. I have a forthcoming article in a collected volume called Freedom and Society: Essays on Autonomy, Identity, and Political Freedom on Mercer University Press.

My article on aesthetics, philosophy of technology and material culture is being hosted by Aesthetics for Birds, a feeder blog for JAAC. https://aestheticsforbirds.com/2019/11/25/spin-me-round-why-vinyl-is-better-than-digital/
