I am an associate professor in philosophy and associated faculty for linguistics at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I arrived in 2018; I was tenured in 2021. For the 2021-2022 school year, I am supported by a grant through the Honesty Project to write about honesty in conversation.

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.

My expertise is in philosophy of language and mind. But I have also written in metaphysics, philosophy of science, epistemology, philosophy of religion, and metaethics. You can find preprints for my published papers at philpapers.
