I am a Killam Postdoctoral Fellow in Philosophy at the University of Alberta. 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.

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.
