“I never submitted the whole system of my opinions to the creed of any party of men whatever in religion, in philosophy, in politics, or in anything else where I was capable of thinking for myself. Such an addiction is the last degradation of a free and moral agent. If I could not go to heaven but with a party, I would not go there at all.”

-Thomas Jefferson

I remain UNDEFINED. I suppose that’s the simplest way to introduce myself here, really. I know that’s not a particularly helpful description, but it has become an inadvertent—and sometimes problematic—goal in my life to avoid any one definition, instead seeking to always expand my interests and skills.

I may not have any particular description for myself in general, but I can at least try to provide a glimpse into who I am. Starting philosophically, you could call me an old soul, a “Renaissance man,” and a philomath. While being vehemently independent in mind and action, I still often look to the wisdom of Jefferson, Thoreau, and the Enlightenment thinkers for guidance as I make my way through life’s wilderness. And finally, as a voluntaryist, I adhere to the Non-Aggression Principle as part of my moral guide, striving to advance the importance of the individual and the cause of Reason and Liberty.

Highest among my many interests, I’m a baritone singer trained in classical music, a hobbyist photographer, and just a tech-obsessed individual in general. And yet, I will happily drop any and all technology in an instant for a simple walk in my sanctum sanctorum that is all of nature, where I am most happy and at peace.

If you are interested, I try to occasionally write on my blog.
