Welcome to my website! 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.

Here is my KPSA 2023 talk.

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.
