Hello! My name is Chad. I'm a Visiting Assistant Professor at the College of William & Mary. As a philosopher, I spend a lot of time thinking about the nature of things like possibility, truth, identity, right, and wrong.
When I'm not doing philosophy, I like to write kid's poems. Secretly, I want to be a children's author. I originally pursued a PhD because I mistakenly believed that I needed one to become the next Dr. Seuss.
Most nights, you'll find me playing a nerdy board game of some sort (by that, I mean games like Dominion, Agricola, Carcassonne, or Runebound, rather than Monopoly or Candyland). I even made my own expansion to the amazing game, Patchwork. Check it out!
Other times, you'll find me traveling, reading (probably about teens saving the day in some dystopian society), attending a show (anything from Broadway to Monster Trucks; The Pixies to Weird Al Yankovic), playing the ukulele, learning to make Ethiopian food, or trying to understand wine.
