About & CV

My new website is here. This website is retained only to delay the tiresome tedium of moving a bunch of blog posts and other pages.

I am Western Kentucky University’s resident logical atomist, and an Assistant Professor of Philosophy in the Department of Political Science. Here is a link to my CV. Most of my current research focuses on the Principia Rewrite project, which you can learn more about on my research page.

In true Texan fashion, I started in philosophy while in a car, reading Plato’s Republic on a road trip to Houston in junior high. I later took symbolic logic as a college freshman and fell in love with the subject. One thing led to another, and in 2018, I got a PhD in Philosophy and an MS in Mathematics from the University of Iowa.
