About

My hope is to teach at the collegiate level. I have a great love of learning and a deep desire to collaborate with other inquisitive souls who long to know more about the world we live in and to discover how we can best live our lives. I hope that through teaching and writing I can extend an invitation for others to join me on this journey for truth and virtue. There is an invaluable intellectual heritage in the West; I want to soak it all up, and, hopefully, contribute to it myself.

What drew me to Hillsdale was the school’s approach to Politics. My undergraduate training was in Humanities because it allowed me to study human nature from a variety of positions—Politics, Philosophy, Literature, etc. I discovered that the “voice” of Politics spoke most deeply to me. It is not merely an academic pursuit, but also one that has tremendous power to do good work for mankind. Hillsdale is committed to this proper study of Politics and seeks to nourish students’ minds and hearts in the interest of helping them to become the best citizens they can be.
