Johnson-225x300I am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at Florida International University in beautiful Miami, Florida. In the fall of 2019 I will join the philosophy faculty at the University of San Diego as an Assistant Professor.

I received my PhD from the Graduate Center, City University of New York in August 2017. Prior to my current position, I was a postdoc with a special project at FIU on philosophy and archaeology.

I am interested in meaning, intentions, archaeology, and adornment. At the moment I am working on papers in philosophy of archaeology and on a book project on meaning in bodily adornment. The book is under contract with Bloomsbury. You can see my conference presentations and field work here.

Prior to beginning my doctorate, I received my BA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and taught English at a lycée in the Académie de Versailles, France. I often paint and draw, and currently attend classes at ArtCenter South Florida. You can see my work here.
