I am a Professor of Philosophy at El Camino College in Torrance, CA. I work on issues in epistemology (esp. the epistemology of modality), metaphysics, and philosophy of religion. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and surfing at nearby Redondo Beach. Click here for my CV. ORCID ID
