Jason graduated cum laude with a BA in both Philosophy and Economics from Denison University in Granville, Ohio in 2006.

He is also currently working on his first book Eros and Ethos: A New Theory and Application of Sexual Ethics (see the Eros and Ethos page for more details).  The book is tentatively scheduled for release in Q4 2016.

He has been an active blogger on multiple blogs since 2004, including many guests posts on different projects.

His primary interest is in sexual ethics.  In terms of philosophers, he’s interested in Ayn Rand, Nietzsche, and Ancient Philosophy (primarily Plato and Aristotle). In terms of fields, he focuses primarily on Ethics and Epistemology, but is also very interested in philosophy of emotions.  He does write about Politics and Economics from time to time, but prefers Philosophy.
