Copies of and links to papers, conference talks, and other publications can be accessed at my site. In the late 80s, I co-wrote with one of my college roommates, Jeffrey G. Peeples (the real writer), an original screenplay called “Thicker Than Water,” which we went on to film and edit. I’ve written some poetry (unpublished) and have a novel in the works.

My latest upload was my Masters Thesis (google books or pdf), “Uncovering the Prejudice in Modern Science and Theology.” My PhD dissertation was a phenomenological investigation of the measurement problem in quantum mechanics. Most of my philosophical scholarship is in phenomenology and the natural sciences, but while at Barrett Honors College I developed a little body of work on the stories about the Boy Who Lived. Some of these include…



…my Harry Potter essay about technology and magic in Harry Potter for Nerds






…and another essay about existentialism in Harry Potter which appeared in Reason Papers


And forthcoming is a manuscript prepared from my conference paper at “A Brand of Fictional Magic” held at St Andrews University, Scotland. Because it was the first conference in Britain dedicated to scholarship on Harry Potter, it garnered the attention of all the major media on the Isles. Scotland TV shot some video on site and yours truly gets about 2 seconds of air time.
