He has his B.A. in philosophy from Denison University and is currently pursuing his Master’s in philosophy at Duquesne University. Working in what can roughly be categorized as the “continental” tradition, his research interests reside at the unholy crux of post-Deleuzian thought, accelerationism, and speculative realism in an attempt to make sense of modern-day capitalist production and consumption. He blogs at Guerrilla Ontology and can be found on Twitter as @hefty_heft.
