I am an assistant professor in philosophy and associate faculty in linguistics at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

My PhD in philosophy is from Rutgers University where I was a member of the semantics group at the Center for Cognitive Science. Prior to that, I earned a master’s in philosophy at Northern Illinois University and a bachelor’s in philosophy from Biola University. I grew up in Puyallup, Washington.

When I’m not in the office (or working from quarantine), you can find me exploring Eastern Wisconsin with my three-year-old Pim. Our favorite places include Kettle Moraine State Forest, Lakeshore State Park, and Wehr Nature Center.

I have begun to use this site for commonplacing, a notetaking practice for which John Locke once devised an entire system. Take a peek if you’re curious about what I’m reading.
