Hi there. I’m an Associate Professor and Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Philosophy Department at the University of Kentucky. I specialize in metaphysics and ontology. I like to think about what there is, parts and wholes, composition, constitution, and modality. You can read more about that here. In my free time, I hang out with my partner and our two little boys, leaving a trail of toddler-caused chaos in our wake. I also flip around a lot – and use the circus arts to magic-trick people into loving philosophy.
