Hello and Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy in the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Legal Studies at Elizabethtown College in Central Pennsylvania. I am also Associate Managing Editor of the international journal, Environmental Ethics, the founding journal of the field. My work focuses on developing avenues for social and environmental justice within education, public discourse, and empowering community engagement with policy and technology for socio-ecological well-being.

My primary research interests are developing urban environmental ethics, comparative environmental philosophy, and sustainability discourse. My teaching emphasizes revisiting the traditional western philosophy canon to expand it so that it addresses gender, class, race, and environmental turns for a more inclusive history while also addressing contemporary issues. In addition to teaching and writing, I provide local workshops, lectures and editorial services for the community. Please explore my website to learn more about my projects and opportunities for engagement.
