I'm an assistant 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 mind, and philosophy of/and/through comics.
Before Denison, I taught at Western Michigan University. Before that, I worked at a trailer park, a pawn shop, a gas station, a cafeteria, and a 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 bad movies.
