I’m a regular faculty member in the Department of Philosophy at Douglas College in New Westminster, British Columbia. I have previously held the following positions: College Professor (term appointment) in the Department of Philosophy at Okanagan College in Kelowna, British Columbia; Visiting Fellow in the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Concordia University of Edmonton; and Sessional Instructor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Western Ontario. I finished my PhD in June 2014 in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Western Ontario and was a member of the Rotman Institute of Philosophy. My current research focuses on historical and contemporary concepts of poverty and distributive justice, the nature of housing, and the political function of narrative and the arts.
I am currently directing the project, “Changing the Conversation: Re-envisioning Narrative Engagement about Housing Insecurity in Communities”, which runs from 2022-2025 and which is generously supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and the Canada Council for the Arts.
