I am Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Graceland University. My main research interests include Metaphysics and Philosophy of Religion, and I am also interested in Environmental Ethics. My primary area of inquiry is personal ontology, specifically how puzzles in ordinary object metaphysics threaten materialist personal ontologies

The courses I teach cover a variety of issues in metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of religion, and ethics. I'm currently teaching Finding Peace in Identity, Environmental Ethics, and an interdisciplinary course, First Year Seminar: Critical Thinking. In Spring, I will teach World Philosophy and Social Dimensions of Equality.

One of my continuing projects is designing and facilitating pedagogy workshops for my peers. I'm particularly interested in the use of rubrics and active learning strategies as means to enhance learning.
