Portrait by Logan Watts

I’m an expedition cyclist and proud ambassador for Seven Cycles and Revelate Designs. I took my first bikepacking trip in 1988 and have since pedaled the world to experience cultures and geographies at a human pace and scale.

I am also professor of philosophy and chair of the cognitive science program at Williams College where I work on topics in mind, knowledge, cognition, and embodiment. My wife Margaret and I split our time between our native New York City and Southern Vermont. Drop me a line at jcruz@williams.edu.
