When not reading philosophy, I'm either hiking, playing video games, or studying Japanese, Some of my studies and interests outside of philosophy include foreign languages, linguistics, Greek/Chinese/Japanese history, and economic/political theory.


Most of my current studies concern accounts of semantic meaning informed by psycholinguistics, primarily those drawing upon the work of Noam Chomsky. I am also currently researching broader issues and debates concerning the nature of cognition generally, as well as those concerning the nature of perception and concepts.
