  • About

    I was born and grew up around Burlington, Vermont. After high school I attended Deep Springs College, a two-year school; there I had the good fortune to be introduced to Philosophy and Classics. Accordingly, I double majored in the two subjects when I completed my Bachelor's Degree at the University of Vermont.

    I primarily work on Aristotle's philosophy of science and metaphysics, and have secondary interests in middle and late Platonic metaphysics and the development of ancient logic and mathematics. As part of Michigan's Program in Ancient Philosophy, I am also affiliated with the Classical Studies department.
