This site is a collection of my writing that reflects my varied interests in technology, gaming, politics and religion. I don’t fit well into any one category as I have had many unique experiences that have made me the man I am today.

I am a former police officer and correctional officer. I’ve lived in California, Georgia, Tennessee, Utah, Brazil and Poland. I currently work as a technical recruiter for an innovative tech company. I enjoy video games and pen and paper roleplaying.

My Politics

I am not well represented by either party in the American political system. I am generally a fiscal conservative who is very concerned about the erosion of civil liberties in America, but I am also a strong proponent of expanding legal immigration.

My Education

I have a master’s degree in international relations from the University of Warsaw in Poland, and wrote my master’s thesis on democratization in post-Communist countries. I hold a B.A. in the same field from American Public University.

My Faith

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (commonly known as the Mormons). My faith is a big part of my life, and makes me a better husband and father. I spent two years as a missionary in Brazil, sharing the joy my faith has brought me with anyone who would like to know.
