I am a philosopher at the University of Florida, where I have now taught for over two decades.

While I am not a native Floridian, my family moved to Florida when I was relatively young, so Florida feels like home. I did my BA at New College of Florida and my PhD at Rutgers University, and I was glad to be able to come back. Florida may have quite the reputation for being an odd state, but perhaps that is only appropriate for a philosopher — to live in an odd state.
