My wife and I.

Welcome to my blog!

I have a master’s degree in History from the City College of New York – CUNY (ΦΒΚ). I’m a US Army Veteran, a husband, and a cat herder (we have six!).

I was born in Alaska, but I’ve lived across the US, in Europe, the Middle East, and in Asia. My wife and I currently reside in New York City.

I’m interested in history, religions, mythology, archaeology, Linux/Open Source, and video games. I read prolifically. I average about fifty books a year, mostly in the Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Horror genres right now. I’m trying to catch up on books I set aside while studying at college. By next year, I think I’ll swing back towards a heavy religion, mythology, and history reading blend.

This is a personal blog, so it has no consistent theme. You’ll find posts here ranging from thoughts on Harry Potter characters to a 40-page historiography on the presentation of Muslims in academic writing following the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon in the US.
