What inspired you to start writing?
I have always enjoyed writing. I don't remember a time when I wasn't tinkering around with a story or an essay of some sort. I knew I'd always be writing since I was in the single digits.
What are your hobbies / interests?
I very much enjoy cooking, motorsports, geeking out over words, and reading all the books.
How did you discover the freedom philosophy?
I am actually one of those second-generation libertarians you read so much about. I didn't so much discover the freedom philosophy as I finally decided to do something about it after my children were born.
