I am, first and foremost, a father and husband. I am also a brother and son. I'm a best friend to a few, and a good friend to many. I believe in the intrinsic goodness of all people. I want to be the best version of myself, so i accept every day as a journey toward that goal.
I have many interests but i love a handful of things: astronomy/astrophysics and anything related to space, human consciousness & perception, technology (especially augmented/virtual reality), physical sports where perseverance and personal challenge are core, learning (anything & everything), politics and public administration.
I am also a giant fan of Dr. Pepper, craft beer and traveling, not necessarily in that order!
