I grew up and currently reside in Columbus, OH. I spent four years in the United States Navy as a cryptologist. After I got out, I attended college at Ohio Dominican University and graduated Summa cum Laude with a dual major in history and political science.
Although most of my coursework focused on American history and American Government and Politics, my loves were intellectual history and political theory. I wrote my senior history thesis on the ideology of the Freemasons and the American Revolution; and for political science I wrote on the importance of Albert Camus in political theory.
Currently, I am employed as a job coach for a small company that provides workforce development services for people with disabilities. I suppose it's not enough to simply preach the virtues of freedom and self-worth, so I make a daily contribution to the improvement of the quality of life for people.
I am a very open-minded guy, and I have a wide range of interests including literature, cinema, art, video games (yes, I'm a gamer), Rock and Roll, classical music, and dark beer. I'm divorced, and I have two beautiful and incredibly bright children.
My two favorite authors are Albert Camus and George Orwell, and this blog is an homage to their legacies.
