The intention behind this blog is a creative outlet in a non-academic, informal setting.  I will be sharing my opinions, thoughts, concerns, and reflections on topics from a number of different areas.  While my academic training is in history, law, and government, I enjoyed writing and discussing many different subjects and will be posting on them as they seem appropriate.

A brief biography:

I am 34 years old, married, and live in Western Massachusetts.  I recently made the career switch from the legal profession to academia, specifically obtaining a M.A. in American History to compliment my J.D. in law.  My Master’s Thesis discussed intellectual change in the early nineteenth century American Northeast caused by the advent of the Market Revolution.  I can provide a copy for anyone who is interested.

Some of my other hobbies and interests include golfing, hiking, music, physical fitness, and enjoying the company of friends amongst good food and drink.  Cheers!!!
