About meI attended culinary school, then cooked for a living prior to my decision to enlist in the United States Marine Corps in August 2002. I deployed to Iraq in 2004, where my unit served as a counter-battery fire artillery unit, a provisional rifle company, and an international border security force. After my tour in the Corps I returned to the Midwest, where I am currently studying Eastern European history at the University of Wisconsin.

About my libraryAs I am a student of twentieth century history, my library tends to skew toward books on politics, philosophy, and the like. I also have particular interests in military history, the Vietnam War, and twentieth century Eastern Europe.

I actually have a great many more books to add to my library, but until I can move to a place where I can have them all readily at hand they will have to remain in storage and uncatalogued.


Favorite authorsJane Austen, Truman Capote, Raymond Chandler, Robert Frost, Thomas Hardy, Václav Havel, Robert A. Heinlein, Chalmers Johnson, Haruki Murakami, Joel Turnipseed, Alfredo Vea, Evelyn Waugh, Craig Werner (Shared favorites)
