My interests are in thinkers like Kant, the German Romantics, and Wittgenstein, as well as in Critical Theory, and Feminist and Black thought. I like questions about aesthetics, art, methodology, forms of pessimism, the nature of thought, and perceptual experience.

In addition to being a graduate student in the philosophy department I am also working in the Program for Critical Theory. Prior to coming to Berkeley I studied photography (BFA, Columbia College), theology (MA, Fuller Seminary), and philosophy (MA, UW-Milwaukee).
