I'm an associate professor in the Philosophy Department at Denison University. My research focuses on metaphysics and its intersections with philosophy of science, philosophy of mathematics, and logic. My current projects focus on abstract entities, modality, and the nature of theoretical virtues like simplicity. Along with these areas, I teach courses on the history of analytic philosophy, philosophy of language, and philosophy in/of/through comics.
Before Denison, I worked at Western Michigan University, a trailer park, a pawn shop, a gas station, a cafeteria, and another gas station. I was born and raised on Vancouver Island, home of the Nanaimo Bar. In my spare time, I read comic books and watch basketball and horror movies.
