Welcome to my website

My work revolves around philosophy of the person, moral philosophy, religion, and culture and how these intersect and impact society, economics, technology, politics - and what it means to lead a good life.

Here you can find links to my writing, speaking, podcast episodes, documentary film, recommended reading, and more. Thanks for visiting.
