I am currently an instructor at Capilano University. My research interests lie mainly at the intersection between the philosophy of art and epistemology, metaphysics, and the philosophy of language, although I've also been known to dabble in 19th-century German philosophy (especially Schopenhauer). I am currently working on a monograph on the role that intuitions and expert testimony play in the ontology of art and other social kinds.

Before coming to Capilano, I was a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Philosophy at the University of British Columbia, I completed my Ph.D. in Philosophy at McGill University in March 2017, where I worked under David Davies and Michael Blome-Tillmann. Before that, I completed an M.A. in Philosophy at Queen's University and a B.A. in Philosophy at Mount Allison University.

My last name looks harder to pronounce than it actually is: Ee-nyess. If you're a Francophile or feeling a little more ambitious, the 'ny' actually sounds like the 'gn' in 'montagne' or the 'ng' in the English gerund 'ing'. Ing-ess works, too.
