Welcome.  This site is under construction, so a few things may not be complete or look quite right.  But thanks for having a look around anyway!

I teach in the Department of Philosophy at Texas A&M University.  My primary areas of research are analytic metaphysics and philosophy of religion.  

In metaphysics, I write about the nature of objects and their properties.  On the property side, I'm interested in the debate between those who take properties to be universals and those who take properties to be tropes.  On the substance side, I'm interested in the debate between bundle theories and substance-attribute theories.  

In philosophy of religion, I write about God's relationship to creatures and their properties.  I am particularly interested in the nature of creaturely properties and powers in a world sustained by God, creaturely uniqueness and the individuative power of divine love, the problem of evil, and the compatibility of freedom and impeccability.
