I teach a wide range of philosophy courses, including Ethics, Environmental Philosophy, Philosophy of Art, and Classical Greek Philosophy. I have published numerous articles on ethics and the philosophy of art, as well as a book on federal funding for the arts.
My newest book, Consuming Choices, was published in April 2010, by Rowman and Littlefield. The book explores whether consumers have moral obligations to boycott products made with immoral practices such as slave labor, animal cruelty, or environmental harm.
In my spare time, I like to play with my crazy chocolate lab, Dolly, and my two wily cats, Satchmo and Edith. I also spend time co-producing a weekly show for WWRM, Randolph’s student radio station, and working on and driving my mobile artwork, “The Ant Car”.
