I am Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Wyoming, where I have been since receiving my PhD in 2003 from the University of Colorado, Boulder under George Bealer. My current research interests concern the metaphysics of epistemology, the diachronic/modal dimensions of knowledge, knowledge-how, intuition, the relationship between linguistic and philosophical analysis, and semantic compositionality. I am also interested in the philosophical dimensions of hunting/fishing, gardening and various other activities concerning the interaction of people with the natural world.
