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 the history of ethics and economics; but I also have interests in contemporary applied ethics, especially basic income and the philosophy of work.
