I am a senior lecturer of philosophy at Coastal Carolina University in Conway, South Carolina. At Coastal Carolina, I teach mainly introductory philosophy courses.  From November 2016 to July 2017, I was a Fulbright Scholar in Madagascar at the University of Antananarivo where I taught American Studies, Philosophy of Language, and Academic English. My interest in Madagascar and its people, culture and language goes back to my service as a Peace Corps Volunteer there from 2007-2009 in the village of Ambatofinandrahana. Outside of my teaching and other academic pursuits, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two young children, playing and watching soccer, and keeping up with world events.
