UPDATE 7/9/2024: As I'm no longer involved in academic philosophy, none of the items on this site are maintained aside from the CV. I maintain it as a repository of my work for anyone interested. I am still actively involved in philosophy, but not from an academic perspective.

Welcome to my web site. Here I archive my professional work in philosophy, which includes both my philosophical writing and materials from my experience as a teacher.

The goal of my work as a philosopher is to defend the idea that the purpose of epistemology is to offer normative guidance to the individual knower. (Read more....)

More than anything else, my approach to teaching reflects an ongoing commitment to communicate the relevance of abstract philosophy to life in the real world. (Read more....)

I am interested in hearing feedback from other philosophers, especially on the matter of my research. Please contact me at with your thoughts.
