He received his Master of Arts in 1992 from The University of Minnesota (Twin Cities) with a major in philosophy, a supporting program in anthropology, and a primary interest in logic. He came to UCO in 2008 after several years of adjunct teaching in Texas. In addition to teaching logic and other philosophy courses over the years, he has worked in a nonprofit agency, taught ESL, lived and traveled in Japan, and played in a few rock bands for a living Primitivism and Related Ideas in the Middle Ages.
