I ♥ climbing rocks, practicing yoga, and finding Waldeinsamkeit.

I consistently bowl 300.


I’m currently interested in various ways language can be brought to bear on problems in the philosophy of mind. In the philosophy of mathematics, I look to bring cross-linguistic evidence to bear on debates about our de re attitudes toward numbers. I’m currently investigating the import of the Vendler taxonomy for a theory of action.
