I earned by BA from Simon Fraser University, and my MA and PhD from the University of California, Davis. My teaching and research are interests are in ethics, the philosophy of sport, and metaphysics. I co-authored (with Doran Smolkin and Warren Bourgeois) the book, Debating Health Care Ethics: Canadian Contexts, 2nd edition. My current research includes a paper on mountaineering ethics and the duty to rescue. I co-founded (with Colin Ruloff) the PHILOsurfer Convergence – an annual conference for philosophers who surf (philosurfers!) and surf journalists.
