About meI recently retired after serving 25 years and 7 months in the United States Army. My career began at West Point and upon graduation I became an infantry officer. I did two tours in Afghanistan and two tours in Iraq. During my career I earned a masters of Peace Operations from George Mason University and a masters of Military Arts and Science from the Army’s School of Advanced Military Studies. Now I am writing in my basement war room. Specifically I’m working on encoding the lessons of Afghanistan into a creative and fun game that will serve as a catalyst for effective learning. My current project is a video series that applies the teachings of the classic military philosophers to Afghanistan.

About my libraryMy library is located in half my basement and is inspired by my father’s study and the many Army plans vaults I served in over the years. I built the books shelves myself (and you can see my design flaws as they sag under the weight of my books)! But the fun part is the sliding white boards I installed over the bookshelves. I have six – two horizontal and four vertical – and they slide on top of each other for easy access to the books, or pull out for a wrap around planning space. My collection focuses on military history, theory, strategy, operational art, tactics and leadership.
