I am originally from Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Specifically, the town of Sandwich, which really does exist. I went to University of Massachusetts Amherst for my undergraduate, where I studied Philosophy and Classics. After that I began my graduate studies in Philosophy at UConn where I've just finished my dissertation. For information on that look at the Research page. I'm currently teaching an introduction to Ethics in Storrs, during breaks I spend my time in Washington D.C.
