I am Professor of Philosophy at the College of Mount St. Joseph in Cincinnati, Ohio. I teach undergraduate courses in Ethics and Philosophy, and graduate courses in Ethics and Leadership and Health Care Policy. I have a Masters Degree in Philosophy and a Ph.D. in the History of Science and Medicine from the University of Kentucky. My teaching and research are both interdisciplinary. When I am not teaching or writing you can usually find me playing guitar.
