I am a freelance writer and philosopher with a wide interest in the arts.

I have written for Aeon, Prospect Magazine, Arts Professional, and New Humanist on topics such as the artist Paul Gauguin, designer euthanasia, truth masochism, and the ethical effect of the internet.

I live in Lincolnshire and work part-time for my local council. I am passionate about public philosophy.

I have given talks at various venues including the National Gallery in London.

I have also written audiobook scripts.

Selected popular essays:

"What are we?" for Aeon

"Against moral sainthood" for Aeon

I received a PhD in Philosophy from Johns Hopkins University; I've also been a SIAS Fellow at Yale Law School and BBAW. My academic work has been published by Cambridge University Press and Routledge. Full list of academic publications here.
