About ME

I am a Christian Libertarian and believe that the primary purpose of government is protect people from evil doers and that, although tempting as it may be to legislate morality, the example of Jesus and the adulterer gives us instruction in how we should encourage and instruct people to follow Christ. We cannot punish and take judgment on actions that do not harm others but have a duty to protect individuals from evil. In fact the more power we give to the elite in government, the more corrupt the institution becomes in performing it's primary duty.

I reject the notion that robbing from the wealthy and giving to the poor is a moral good and believe that ultimately we are all worse off when this happens because it gives incentives and capabilities to the most corrupt parts of our society, the power to kill and steal under the guise protecting protecting the weak. Many forget that in Robinhood, the corrupt government official was stealing from the common man to make himself rich, a story unfortunately resembling today,

I spent the first 18 years of my life growing up in Grand Rapids in the Creston District near the intersection of College and Leonard attending Aberdeen, Zoo, and City Middle/High School. After graduating high school I attended Michigan State University for a year and transferred to the University of Michigan where I graduated with a bachelors in Computer Science and Economics. I then have worked as a software engineer for 8 years.

I am a husband and father of a 5 year old, 3 year old, and a newborn. I love camping and spending time at the beach with friends and family.
