I grew up minutes from the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in the small town of Washburn, Wisconsin. Before coming to Princeton I studied philosophy and business management at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, after which I spent a year teaching English at the Martin-Luther-Schule in the German Odenwald. Now I'm a fifth year PhD student in the Department of Philosophy and a third year RGS at Rocky. I also serve as a Graduate Teaching Fellow at the McGraw Center.
My research interests are primarily in ethics and the history of philosophy, particularly the ethical thought of 19th century German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. Outside of philosophy, I enjoy traveling, learning foreign languages, watching sports, and lifting weights. I'm thrilled to be a part of the Rocky community again this year, and I look forward to meeting you soon!
