I'm a PhD student in the philosophy department at Temple University. I'm interested in the philosophy of the human sciences, aesthetics, and phenomenology.

I recently published an article "Reassessing Dilthey's Social Ontology" where I argue that Wilhelm Dilthey's account of social existence is far more viable than is suggested by Gadamer and Heidegger. Now, I am exploring how psychedelic drugs act as tools of self-creation and whether selves shaped by psychedelics are best explained through the resources of natural science.

I also play guitar in an experimental rock band called Spirit Furnace.
