What inspired you to start writing?
I started writing to respond to the acrimony of the 2016 election. I believe it is possible to have a civil debate about big controversial ideas without being contemptuous of your opponents.
What are your hobbies / interests?
Writing. Reading. Running. Hiking.
How did you discover the freedom philosophy?
There were always copies of National Review and Cato Journal in our home growing up. Then, in college I discovered Hayek.
Who are your favorite writers?
