In A Nutshell

I'm a writer, veteran, secular humanist, stoic, proud member of the anti-totalitarian left, and a descendant of German Jews. After three years of studying Biology, Psychology, and Philosophy, I left university to pursue a more exciting life... and so far have not been disappointed. My professional background includes a mixture of military service, political organizing, and defense contracting. Due to my work I have lived and traveled all over the world: Asia, Africa, Europe, South America, the Caribbean, and the Middle East. My writing has been featured in a wide array of publications including Thought Catalog, The Humanist, Wrath-Bearing Tree, and Areo Magazine. What you can expect to find on my website (where I shout into the void and hope the void shouts back) are my personal reflections on philosophy, history, current world affairs, and occasionally food. I've been loving life for twenty-seven years and hope to love life for seventy-three more. Influences: Christopher Hitchens, George Orwell, Marcus Aurelius, Ernest Hemingway, Thomas Paine, Thomas Jefferson, Voltaire, Nick Cohen, Sam Harris, Sidney Hook, Nachman Syrkin, Rabbi Sherwin Wine.
