Me with the late, great Gus and Charlie.
I am an associate professor of philosophy at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and a fellow in the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics, UK. I teach and write on twentieth-century European philosophy (especially hermeneutics and philosophy as a way of life) and applied ethics (especially animal and food ethics). I co-founded Wake Up Weekend (though that project is currently on hiatus) and I am the founder and convener of the Animals and the Kingdom of God Lecture Series. I also collaborate regularly with Vegan Grand Rapids to bring animal-friendly events and speakers to our fair city. I'm a member of the faith advisory council of the Humane Society of the United States, the North American advisory council of CreatureKind, and the advisory board of Sarx. Thanks for looking things over and do let me know if you have any questions!
