What inspired you to start writing?
I love ideas! Whether in books or in conversations with friends, there are deep wells of wisdom just waiting to be dug. I get excited about taking that sagacity and presenting it to readers in a way that is memorable, meaningful, and practical.
What are your hobbies / interests?
Museum hopping, roller coaster riding, and trail hiking.
How did you discover the freedom philosophy?
I had the privilege of growing up in a military community, where the concept of freedom was made palpable as I regularly hugged my dad goodbye and saw soldiers come back home in ways that evidenced the high cost of defending freedom. However, it wasn't until college that I was properly introduced to some of the intellectual giants that have shaped today's liberty movement.
