I am Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of San Diego (PhD NYU 2013, BA UC Berkeley 2006). I write mostly about aesthetic value and its place in our lives. In doing so I draw on and contribute to work in value theory, philosophy of language, history of philosophy, moral psychology, social philosophy, and other areas. I also write for non-academic audiences and have published work in various popular outlets, including Penguin Books, McSweeney's, and Aeon.
