  • About
Assistant Professor of Philosophy


My areas of specialization are philosophy of religion and philosophy of race. In philosophy of religion I am particularly interested in the epistemic status of miracles and religious experiences and also in the nature of omnipotence. My dissertation was a study of multiverse theory and alternative conceptions of God in which I address the theological consequences of particular theories in quantum physics. In philosophy of race I am particularly interested in topics related to racial solidarity, and in the exploring the terminology used to describe racist dispositions. I have also researched and taught in epistemology, metaphysics, aesthetics, critical thinking, ethics, and philosophy of love and sex.

Before coming to Siena Heights I spent time teaching at Kwantlen Polytechnic University and The University of the Fraser Valley and, prior to entering academia, I spent 15 years in the restaurant and nightclub industry. Aside from reading and writing I am a huge baseball and basketball fan and can often be heard cheering for the Red Sox and the Clippers.
