I’m a faculty member in the Foundations Program at Grantham University, where I teach courses in the humanities. Previously, I taught at Florida Gulf Coast University and Florida SouthWestern State College. I hold a master’s degree in philosophy from Florida State University. I’m currently working towards a PhD at the University of Reading, where my dissertation will focus on defending a human-centered approach to environmental ethics.
My teaching and research interests are in applied ethics, social philosophy, and environmental ethics. Within these areas, my scholarly work draws on the resources of classical natural law theory to defend a broadly libertarian-conservative approach to the controversial moral issues of our time. I also have occasional interests in the philosophy of religion, specifically in natural theology.
Check out my CV for a full list of my published works. I am the category editor for the PhilPapers section on gun control, where I maintain a catalogue of papers relevant to the topic. I am also a member of the Evangelical Philosophical Society (but not the Society of Christian Philosophers, due to their disgraceful treatment of Richard Swinburne).
