About

E.B. White, author of The Elements of Style, said that he arose each morning torn between a desire to change the world and a desire to enjoy it, and that this made it very hard to plan his day. I feel the man's pain. The tension between personal responsibility and social concern pulls at me daily, and this unresolved tension informs a great deal of my work.  

What I strive to do, then, is create written works of art that challenge and inspire people toward both personal and social transformation. I write in order to cast vision of the world as it could be, all the while urging people to be their best selves now, regardless of the mess in which they live.

Consequently, my interests lie in many different fields. I move freely between philosophy, labor, religion, psychology, and world history in a bold attempt to integrate all the truth I can find from every available source. As a result, I am constantly re-drawing my inner map of the world, and because of this you probably won't like everything I have to say. Hopefully, though, you will never fail to be challenged or inspired in some fundamentally useful way that makes the journey, and perhaps even your support, worthwhile.

There is certainly a great deal more to be said, and I plan to say it. Check out my first post, What's the plan?, for more information on how I will be moving forward. Thanks!
Goals
3% complete
Currently, my work consists of writing essays and articles and submitting them to professional publications--on any number of topics related to the overall theme of wholenessIn the future there will be books, online courses, a podcast, and other creative business ventures. 

$2300 is what I need to get this entire project off the ground. This amount will enable me to devote all my working hours to the creative process while also covering my family's basic living expenses. Every dollar is appreciated, and those who invest in my work will be rewarded with the highest quality content I can produce, with the most generous givers will be included in my unique profit-sharing program.
