My focus is on my family - four beautiful girls and my wonderful wife. Homeschooling has brought a focus and intense interest in the learning process - what is necessary, what is sufficient, how if can be done.
The question of how can one raise healthy, happy, independant children is of primary interest to me.
I've been designing software since my early teens. I do it professionally and as a hobby. I'm currenlty most interested in web based applications, but I'm always playing with something new.
Music and literature have always been a big part of my life. From Rush to Ayn Rand to Nana Mouskouri to Victor Hugo, there are too many favorites to list here.
I'm currenlty focused on what I call 'The Art of Liberty', and trying to find and promote artists whose messages resonate with a free life. If there's any chance of liberty taking hold, a culture of liberty will need to be built up to support it. Hopefully, I can help contribute to this.
Other random interests that I have are:
- mysterious and unexplained phenomena - which I've been fascinating with as far back as I can remember
- technology and science - all kinds
- self-sufficency (yes I know no one can be fully self-sufficient - perhaps preparedness is better)
I have always enjoyed physical activity and sports. For general fitness I play games with my girls and do Crossfit in my garage.
I currently spend more time rock climbing than anything else. I love volleyball, and up until a year ago I had been playing it year round for almost 20 years. My heart belongs to track and field even though I don't participate at the moment. I hope to run in some Masters competitions in the future.
