About Me

teach Philosophy at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, where I'm an Associate Professor.  I received my Ph.D from the University of North Carolina, at Chapel Hill.

My research interests are in metaphysics and the history of philosophy.  Particular interests are in the Philosophy of Time, the nature of color and perception, and the so-called Problem of Universals.  Recent publications include a book co-edited with James O'Shea: Self, Language, and World: Problems from Kant, Sellars, and Rosenberg (Ridgeview Press).

At IUP I teach a wide range of courses, including Ethics, Critical Thinking, Symbolic Logic, Metaphysics, Contemporary Analytic Philosophy, and Ancient Philosophy.

In my spare time I play guitar and have a YouTube page with guitar instructional videos.
