I’ve been writing professionally since 2006. In addition to studying philosophy at undergraduate and PhD level, I have taught, examined, and written about the subject for students and the general reader in a range of published books and articles. From 2000 until 2016 I ran the website Philosophy Online, producing resources to support fellow teachers, students and those new to philosophy.
