I'm a third-year PhD student in the philosophy department at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. I'm originally from Nashville. I got my B.A. in philosophy at the University of Tennessee and my M.A. in philosophy at Texas Tech. When a non-philosopher asks me what I'm interested in, I say "ethics". When a philosopher asks me, but I don't have much time to explain, I say "metaethics". But when I really want to get precise about my interests, I say that I'm into the metaphysics and epistemology of normativity, and I've got some side interests in metaphysics (esp. time and causation), and analytic philosophy of religion (esp. all of it).
Outside of philosophy, I play some basketball, watch some football, and hang out with my wife, Laura. We live in Madison, WI and we love it.
