Summary

I like to think of myself as a bit of a Renaissance man.  I know a little bit about everything but I'm always looking for more.  I believe there’s always something more than what we know about a given topic. We tend to generalize and stereotype but I like to dig deeper and see the truth behind what we think we know. 

I'm not a skeptic, I'm genuinely interested. My hope is that this comes through in all my writing whether in journalism, blogging, or books.

Objective

I'd like to find a career in publishing and/or business management.
