• About Me

    • PROFESSIONAL:   I am a Bilinski Fellow and Research Visitor (VAR) in the philosophy department at Yale University. Before this, I was a Fulbright doctoral research visitor at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Universität Potsdam. My dissertation is on "The Imagination in Reason: Kant and Hegel," and my Ph.D. is through the University of South Carolina. I am currently working with the Society for German Idealism and Romanticism (www.thesgir.org), and co-editing a volume on the Imagination in German Idealism and Romanticism for Cambridge University Press. On the side, I am  an Editor for (1) the Yale Law School peer-review  journal: Yale Journal of Law and the Humanities, (2) SGIR Review, a peer-reviewed publisher of book reviews in German Idealism and Romanticism, and (3) Evental Aesthetics, a peer-reviewed journal of aesthetics. For courses taught as well as student and faculty evaluations, see my page on teaching.

    • PERSONAL:   To me, the best parts of life are the moments with my wife and our two kids. I love experiencing diverse cultures, traveling, and have lived for six years in four continents beyond North America. My activities include sprint-triathlons, pottery, photography, metal and wood sculpting, tennis, cross-country skiing, and soccer (captain, co-captain, regular participant in intramural soccer teams). I love literature, from the novels of Dostoevsky to the poems of T.S. Eliot; from the short stories of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie to the epic myths of J.R.R. Tolkien. I also enjoy creative writing.
