I’ve spent my whole life living in the same city in the middle of the Midwest. (I do travel.) For a brief period in my teens I was a liberal, until I realized down that road lay nothing but ruin. I make up for my youthful indiscretion by being a conservative academic, which I found out too late is a synonym for “unemployable.” Luckily I can be a stay at home dad for my little girl, but I do hope to shake the unemployment eventually.

I’m also working on my PhD dissertation in the field of bioethics. My dissertation is on animal research (from the under-argued “do more animal research” side.) I also have interests in human subjects research and health care policy.
