What I do
I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Denver and Core Faculty member at the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research.
I hail from Toronto, Canada, the home of such luminaries as Margaret Atwood, Samantha Bee, Rob and Doug Ford, and Drake. I live near Olde Town Arvada, Colorado, with my wife, and the dozen or so trees in our yard.
