I am currently a PhD candidate in philosophy at Indiana University - Bloomington. I hail from Northern Illinois University, where I received my M.A. in philosophy. 

Broadly, I am interested in the following areas: epistemology, philosophy of language, philosophy of logic, metaphysics of theism, and medieval philosophy. More specifically, I have a vested interest in: modal conditions on the nature of knowledge, the skeptical problem, the nature of reference, minimalism about truth, perfect being theology and Augustine. 

While not doing philosophy, I enjoy all things poetry and gustatory. Gerard Manley Hopkins and George Herbert are my constant companions. If I’m neither reading Hopkins or Herbert nor philosophizing, then I’m probably cooking, drinking wine (or scotch or brandy or mezcal), and enjoying the company of my wife (note: each 'or' is of the inclusive kind).
