I am a lecturer in the Departments of Philosophy at the University of St Andrews. I am also a member of the Advisory Committee for the Arché Philosophical Research Centre.
I work mostly in ethical theory, especially in metaethics and practical reasoning, with serious side interests in the philosophy of language and epistemology.
I recently completed my PhD at the University of Southern California. Before going to USC, I studied philosophy and mathematics at West Virginia University. And before that, I spent about eighteen years in my hometown, Lewisburg, WV, which was recently named the Coolest Small Town in America.
