I am currently managing editor of Ethical Perspectives, an international peer-reviewed journal whose focus is to promote dialogue between fundamental and applied ethics. My PhD thesis (K.U.Leuven, Belgium) was on Ludwig Feuerbach, which I wrote under William Desmond.

I have recently published on what I call Feuerbach's open dialectic, on the ethics of architecture, and on just war. I am currently preparing a text on the ontological arguments of Hegel and Anselm, as well as work of popular philosophy on the phenomenology of death in Johnny Cash. Together with a colleague, I am also preparing an English translation of Alexander Gottlieb Baumgarten's Metaphysics (from the Latin)

I play baseball (shortstop) for the Leuven Twins, review alternative music, love to cook, and fluently read German, Dutch, and Latin.
