I earned my MA Philosophy from Concordia University (in my native Canada) before going on to conduct several years of unconsummated PhD research at the University of Glasgow (United Kingdom). In the interim between tenures at Glasgow, I won a two-year research studentship to study at the University of Tokyo (Japan). Over the last decade I’ve taught Philosophy, English, Social Science, and General Education courses at various universities, most recently at King Saud University (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) and the American University in the Emirates (United Arab Emirates). A former Associate Lecturer here at the Open University’s Department of Philosophy, I have since reenrolled as a PhD Candidate under the supervision of Jon Pike and Alex Barber. The tentative title of my dissertation is “Bernard Suits and the Utopian Politics of Gaming”.
I’ve authored a monograph and had several articles published in academic journals on diverse topics in moral and political philosophy (as well as less frequent excursions into epistemology and metaphilosophy). Many of my articles can be freely accessed online here:
