Classification: PT Credit Instructor
I am full-time faculty and coordinator of the Philosophy and Religion program. Before coming to Lane, I lived on the Central Coast of California and taught as part time at several colleges and universities, including U.C. Santa Barbara, Cal Poly, Allan Hancock College and Cuesta College. I grew up in Sacramento and received my B.A. in Religious Studies and Philosophy from Sacramento State and an M.A. and C. Phil from U.C. Santa Barbara.
My academic interests include arguments for and against the existence of God, the foundations of ethics, social and political philosophy, philosophical issues surrounding science and technological progress, epistemology, philosophical psychology, decision theory, cognitive science and Western religion. I'm also Faculty Advisor for LCC Students for Liberty, an on-campus club dedicated to individual rights, limited government and promoting the ideals of a voluntary society guided by reason, freedom and compassion.
