I'm a graduate student in philosophy at MIT.

Before I came to MIT, I attended UNC Chapel Hill.

For fun, I like manipulating objects using only my hands.


I practice a kind of linguisticized metaphysics.

Fond of all things meta: metaphilosophy, metaphysics, metametaphysics, etc.

Fan of the German Idealists and their successors.


We can illuminate the nature of meaning by reflecting on its origins.

President of the Black Graduate Student Association at MIT. Proud member of ACME.

Shout out to Matthias Jenny, Alex Byrne, and Rebecca Millsop.
