I grew up in various places, but mostly in Provo, Utah. I am an Eagle Scout and I served a full-time LDS mission in Washington State. I am generally interested in economics, philosophy, writing, sociology, history, and politics. Mormon History, collectivist and individualist ideologies, and comparative history are particular points of interest.
I am recently graduated from UVU in Orem, Utah, where I wrote a capstone project on the history of the United Order in Brigham City, Utah. I maintain three blogs a bit inconsistently, work as a freelance editor and in a local woodshop, and talk about politics too much. I spend my free time running ridiculously long distances, playing Tetris or Pac-Man, tinkering with ancient valve electronics, playing guitar, or best of all, hanging out with my wife and kids.
