I am preparing for doctoral study, intending to explore the philosophical relationships between Kant, Wilfrid Sellars, and Edmund Husserl. After that, I plan to teach and study professionally. I enjoy learning, reading, writing, talking, and music, among much else.

I am sporadically involved in a variety of more aesthetic activities.
I briefly wrote a bimonthly column for the online journal TERSE., called Outlying the Avenues. A non-fiction (and very introspective) short story of mine titled “Tenure” was published in Transfer Magazine, Issue No. 112, and a free-form poem titled “What if… I’m Just Done?” was published in Bolt Magazine, Issue No. 3.
I am very slowly writing a classic tetralogy and a modern novel, and have quite a few unpublished poems lying around.
