About

I write. The most fun type of writing -- and perhaps not coincidentally, the type I am best at -- is feature stories. Atmospheric, on the scene, character sketches, what have you. I intend to use some of the money from this thing to write those pieces, travel for them if needed -- and to do some entertainment writing. Maybe I just have the libertarian perk of being a novelty, but sometimes it feels like entertainment writing is more insular and hard to break into than politics.

Look, I want to free people from death row and end war, but I also want to find a journalistic excuse to go see Taylor Swift or discuss vintage toys.

Writing is My Thing in caps. However, I've dabbled in and delighted in podcasting, and intend to return. I also have dreams of video production, partially from a half dozen Reason TV videos I did long ago, partially because I'm jealous of VICE anchors, and partially from endless History Channel and PBS docs presented to me by dear old dad.

Stick around. I aim to entertain and inform, and yes, well, come off as I hope to be, a human who you might like, even if you're less keen to smash the state.

Interests -- if this were a dating site, but it isn't -- are the following: journalism, documentaries, history, vintage everything--but especially toys, vintage ephemera, Americana, trains, being a terrible gardener, photography, poetry, punk, country music, old time, World War II, The Cold War, the entire 20th century, atomic age, spooky nuke stuff, peace and freedom.

My work has appeared in publications including Reason, The American Conservative, The Daily Beast, Playboy, The Washington Post, VICE, The Federalist, FEE,  Antiwar.com, The Spectator, and the Washington Examiner. I tend to hit criminal justice and war.

I will bring back a consistent podcast, either Politics for People Who Hate Politics or the Lonesome Road, ideally both. The former is an all-purpose libertarian chat show that has had two different itterations, which can be found on Youtube. The latter was a brief attempt -- scarred by bad internets -- to do a paranormal, libertarian, and country music podcast with two lovely internet friends.
