I am currently attached to La Salle University, where I am assistant professor of philosophy, teaching ethics and philosophical anthropology.

Previous to that, I was on staff at the Centre for Ethics, K.U.Leuven (Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium), where my duties included editing 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. Together with a colleague, I am also preparing an English translation of Alexander Gottlieb Baumgarten's Metaphysics (from the Latin).

Until my move to Philadelphia, I played baseball (shortstop) for the Leuven Twins and coached the youth team. I continue to review alternative music. I am often to be found in front of a stove, or behind weighty Dutch, German, or Latin tomes.
