About meI'm a software engineer and entrepreneur. I am Director of the Suncoast Skeptics, a critical thinking discussion group in Sarasota, Florida. I also co-host the podcast Positively Doubtful. I enjoy skepticism, traveling, kayaking, debate, music, college basketball, science, history, philosophy, comparative religion, and reading (duh).
About my libraryMy interests are generally non-fiction, centered around physics/astronomy, biology, religion, skepticism, history, military history, history of science, philosophy, mind, and mathematics. When I read fiction, it is nearly always military fiction, classic literature, fantasy, or sci-fi.
