I am Associate Professor and Chair of Philosophy, and 2017-18 Bonner Fellow for Community-Based Learning, at Oberlin College. My main research area is aesthetics and I teach philosophy of art, philosophy of film, philosophy of music, value theory, and a community-based learning course, Philosophy in the Schools (PHITS). I have published articles on digital art, ethical art criticism, imagination, formalism, film narration, and empathy in film. I am the author of Aesthetics and Film (2008), coeditor of New Waves in Aesthetics (2008), and editor of Current Controversies in Philosophy of Film (2016).
