About Me

I received my PhD in Philosophy from the University of Connecticut in 2017. My research focuses on the intersection between philosophy of language and linguistics, and in particular, on the relationship between work in the philosophy of language and semantics as it fits into the generative linguistics framework. I also spend a lot of time worrying about philosophical methodology and explanation and how they bear on the relationship between philosophy and the sciences, and on philosophical theorizing in general.

I am currently involved in the production of The Badlands Politics and Philosophy podcast and website. The Badlands aims to present, in a publicly accessible way, the philosophical dimensions of contemporary political issues, with a particular focus on progressive politics and issues. All Badlands related content can be found at BadlandsPhilosophy.com (Twitter: @TheBadlandsPod).

When I'm not doing philosophy stuff, I spend my time looking for pickup basketball games or working on music.  (Some of my compositions can be found on the 'Music' page of this site - a small collection of guitar solos and duets.)
