  • Biography/Intro
    b.1959, SE Wisconsin. I have always had a fixation with comic/commercial/professional illustration, and often used my time in school to develop my own style. This got me into lots of trouble. At age 18, I lived independently, working factory jobs, until, at age 24, I supported myself through 2yrs of college. My choice allowed me to work in radio for 3 yrs. At age 26, I became a father. The State dictated the terms of my obligations, demanding 17% of my gross earnings for child support. My son's mother relocated to her original home, in a more affordable region hundreds of miles away. While I made every effort within reason to maintain contact with my son, financial obligations remained non-negotiable. This period of my life is difficult to explain, other than to say my choices included going to jail, or making more money. I chose the latter over the former. Eventually, I attained a career as a maintenance mechanic, and returned to factories. It was honest work, although it did not fulfill my aspirations. My obligations to others have been made whole. At age 60, I resigned from my mechanical maintenance occupation. Proudly going forward, I live a life of rationality, creativity, and purpose. I am on the "Road to Repair.". .
  • Experience with Objectivism
    I discovered the works of Ayn Rand late in life, however, many of my own life-long observations were so nearly identical to Rand's that I was immediately convinced of her genius. Since 2008, I have read Virtue of Selfishness; Capitalism: Unknown Ideal; The Fountainhead; Anthem; We the Living; and Atlas Shrugged. I have For the New Intellectual on CD. Other Objectivist literature I've read include: Objectivism: the Philosophy of Ayn Rand, The DIM Hypothesis, both by L.Peikoff.. I have viewed multitudes of YouTube videos, interviews, and anything about Rand, including many critical commentaries. I have also attempted to converse with others about Objectivism, but so far, my experience has been that most people are opposed to rational ideas. At present, I am living a life in accordance with the Objectivist principles.

      Sounds like a recipe for a Chinese curse: "May you live in interesting times."
