My areas of research are in social and moral phenomenology and personalism. I study the meaning of the person, love, and intuition primarily in the thought of the 20th Century German philosopher, Max Scheler. Most recently, I have co-edited (with my wife, Holly Mohr) a volume of the Pop Culture and Philosophy series, Mister Rogers and Philosophy (Open Court, 2020). I'm currently working on a book on ethics for a general audience, What Is Good? A Philosophical Expedition, as well as co-editing an anthology, The Legacy of Max Scheler (Marquette University Press, 2022). I live in the east end of Pittsburgh. I enjoy bike riding, philosophically interesting films and TV shows, exploring new restaurants with my wife, and playing games with my three children. Students are encouraged to come talk to me about any philosophical connections with movies/shows they've seen!
