I was born and raised in Fall River, an old mill town with lots of pride in southeastern Massachusetts. I stumbled upon philosophy while pursuing a B.A. in Psychology at Bridgewater State University and never looked back. In 2009 I moved to Pullman, Washington to pursue my M.A. in Philosophy. After graduating from Washington State University in August of 2011 I moved beside the beautiful Canadian Rockies while I completed my doctorate degree at the University of Calgary; I finished and my degree was conferred in February 2019. After graduating I moved back to southeastern Massachusetts where I now teach full time at Northeastern University and part time at Bridgewater State Univeristy and Umass Dartmouth. When I am not doing philosophy I enjoy spending time with the my friends and the little people in my life (pictured with me on the right is my son Benji (little guy) and stepson Jordan), hiking (that's me climbing Mt. St. Helens in the foreground on the left), traveling, watching the Celtics and Redsox, tweeting, listening to music, trying new restaurants, watching movies, and taking photos.
