I am Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. My Areas of Specialization are philosophy of language and ethics, especially their intersections, and especially as they relate to broader issues in philosophy of mind and logic. I am Co-founder, Past Editor, and Contributor to PEA Soup, a blog dedicated to discussion of philosophy, ethics, and academia. In 2014, I was honored to receive the Outstanding Teaching Award for Full-Time Lecturer in UNC Charlotte’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and, in 2009-2010, an Outstanding Faculty Award from UNC Charlotte’s Office of Disability Services for commitment to accessbility. Prior to arriving in Charlotte, I served as Assistant Professor of Philosophy at California State University Bakersfield (2003-2007) and earned my PhD from the University of Florida (2003).
