I’m joining the faculty in the University of Alabama’s Department of Philosophy (Jurisprudence Specialization) in the fall of 2020.  I completed my Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of Virginia, where I worked with A. John Simmons.  My first book, The Retrieval of Liberalism in Policing, was published by Oxford University Press in 2019.

Here is my CV.

I worked as an FBI Special Agent – both in Charlottesville, VA, and Washington, DC – before making the natural transition to academic philosophy.  My first faculty position was at Radford University, which wrote this profile discussing the connections between my work in the FBI and my work in philosophy.  Before joining the FBI, I graduated from law school and served as a law clerk for a federal judge.

I live with my wife, a clinical psychologist, and two sons in Tuscaloosa.
