I'm a deep thinker and I'm interested in all things human. I value civil discourse, optimism, forgiveness, art, creativity, and love. I write about politics, philosophy, economics, music, art, movies, books, and a lot of other stuff, too. I hope that all of my readers learn a little bit more about the world through my perspective and my writing. If I could leave you all with one thing, I just want you to know that I believe in every human being's potential to be good and I will try my hardest to give everyone respect, kindness, and help when they need it. Love is the only way forward!
