Bio

About Me:

I’m a full-time member of the Department of Philosophy at Kwantlen Polytechnic University and Sessional Instructor in the Department of Philosophy at Simon Fraser University. My research ranges primarily over epistemology and the philosophy of religion. Within epistemology, I work on issues related to the internalism/externalism debate, skepticism, and the epistemic basing relation. Within the philosophy of religion, I work on issues related to religious epistemology and natural theology. 

I’m an avid surfer, vert skateboarder, and fly fisher. When not doing philosophy, you can probably find me here,  here, or here.
