Picture of me looking all serious and brooding about something.

Here is my curriculum vitae.


** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE ** The Red and The Real: An Essay on Color Ontology. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2009.
In this monograph I bring together and extend many of the themes and ideas I have been pursuing in article form for the past several years about the nature of color. In particular, the book is an extended elaboration and defense of color relationalism and role functionalism about color.
