I am Assistant Professor of Philosophy at The George Washington University in Washington, DC. Although a US citizen by birth, I grew up on the beautiful sun-kissed island of Tobago (of which I am also a citizen). I earned a B.A. from the University of the Southern Caribbean in Trinidad, an M.A. from Harvard University, an M.Phil. from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, and a Ph.D. in philosophy from Columbia University. 

My current research lies in the philosophy of action at the intersection of philosophy of mind, epistemology, and moral psychology. It explores the normative significance of desire and intention and the ways in which it is similar and dissimilar to the normative significance of perception and belief.
