I’m an art critic based in New York City. Currently, I am the Associate Editor at SNAP Editions. Before that, I was an Editorial Fellow at Rhizome at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, the New York Correspondent at e-flux, and a columnist at DINCA. I was also the founder and editor-in-chief of Pool, an online platform and PDF publication critically investigating the relationship between internet culture and art (culminating in book form for release in 2014 (Italy: LINK Editions)). In my spare time I like to design things (mainly posters and websites) and make music (vocals, guitar, keyboard).
Areas of Research
My interest here lies predominantly within philosophy of language but also vaguely extends into metaphysics and epistemology. Currently, I’m interested in the semantics of proper names, empty names, and theories of reference. More recently though, I’ve become interested in doxastic logic, intentionality, debates within philosophical methodology, metaethics (specifically the Frege-Geach problem), and certain ontological issues within philosophy of art.
Much of what I’m interested in here, namely the ontological status of art, overlaps with my research in philosophy of art. Right now, I’m interested in some of Wittgenstein‘s ideas concerning language and aesthetics, as well as Dickie/Danto’s institutional theories of art. However, I’m also just generally interested in theorizing about contemporary art. There are texts and articles, as well as artist interviews I’ve conducted that can be found in both the papers and misc. sections.
