Born and raised in Belleville, Ontario, I attended the University of Ottawa for my undergraduate education, concurrently completing an Honours BA in Philosophy and an Honours BSocSc in Political Science. My research interests include moral and political philosophy, particularly metaethics. Within metaethics I am presently interested in foundational questions of moral ontology. Besides philosophy, I nurture an interest in Canadian politics, history and sociology. Outside of academia, I involve myself in federal and provincial politics, serve as a reservist in the Canadian Forces, and volunteer with groups like Reconciliation Canada, which promotes dialogue between indigenous and non-indigenous Canadians. My hobbies include reading, jogging, and watching indie films.
