I am a nuclear engineer and computer programmer. I am also an avid home brewer and do-it-yourself kind of guy. I live with my wife and son in San Diego. I’ve officially been a member of the Libertarian Party since April, 2016, but I’ve had libertarian leanings since I first saw Ron Paul run for President in 2008 and 2012.

I really started to get into the ideas of liberty and the libertarian movement when I started listening to some podcasts. I’ve got a list of the ones I listen to on a regular basis on my Resources page.

I’m starting this blog as a way of helping me clarify and put in writing my thoughts on the ideas of liberty, to potentially spread the message to more people, and to hopefully learn a little bit more myself.

I hadn’t seen anybody trying to clearly and logically tie their political stances back to simple, moral principles, so I thought maybe I’d give it a shot and see if anybody appreciated seeing things laid out that way.
