About Me Intense, articulate, career changer seeking a break from the scholarly grind. Besides too much reading, I like movies, and have been known to go hiking, horse back riding and even fencing (with sabers, not watches). A few publications under my belt, I actually enjoy writing and am learning to enjoy cooking.

Wild Fact About Me After many years in the computer industry, I returned to school and completed my Ph.D. in philosophy
My Philosophy My philosophy genuinely is philosophy: specifically, process metaphysics, pragmatism, and logic.
What Gives Me Hope Hope is a crutch that can be pulled out from under you. We fight for what we believe not because we "hope" to win, but because it is the only thing we can do.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Supreme Despot: change the structure of education to emphasize critical thinking and evaluation of facts.
