About Me

I'm a Philosophy Ph.D. candidate at the University of Utah specializing in early modern philosophy (especially Locke) and philosophy of religion. 

I love anything and everything pertaining to the early modern era and philosophy of religion, especially where the two converge! My current research, for instance, focuses on Locke's views on the nature and purpose of miracles as evidence for Christianity. Further projects will connect Locke's views on miracles to his views on other subjects such as power, magic, and religious toleration.

I have many other philosophic interests as well, including Medieval and modern Christian theology (I'm currently reading Hans Urs von Balthasar's Love Alone), 19th-century German Philosophy, Existentialism (especially Kierkegaard and Camus), and ancient Epicurean and Stoic philosophy.

When I'm not philosophizing, I love spending time with my partner and our dog, traveling, playing video games, and perusing used book stores for hidden treasures (the most recent of which was Willis Barnstone's Restored New Testament)!
