I’m currently a PhD candidate in the Department of Philosophy at the University of California, Irvine.

My primary research interests are in the history of analytic philosophy, but I also have interests in contemporary epistemology, metaphysics, and the philosophy of language. Overall, my work is driven by a desire to understand the relationship between our ordinary beliefs and the demands and doubts that philosophy is thought to impose on them.

I did my MA in Philosophy at Brandeis University and my BFA in Studio Art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In between those degrees, before finding my way to philosophy, I worked as an editor and writer in New York, mostly writing about art influenced by the internet.
