I am a doctoral candidate in Purdue's philosophy department, where I also serve as a graduate instructor, and as academic program manager. When I'm not helping recruit and retain students in pursuit of the most fundamental and meaningful questions one can ask, teaching my own courses, or writing my dissertation, I act as the director of Purdue's speech and debate team, the C. Richard Petticrew Forum.

I have taught several courses including environmental ethics, technology, engineering, and design ethics, and critical thinking. Over the summer, I also help run a philosophy-focused, 7-week-long debate institute at the University of Michigan. 

My research interests primarily focus on the work of Friedrich Nietzsche, particularly as it relates to topics in contemporary discussions in ethics and metaethics.
