I'm an underemployed 32 year old man studying computer science when I can. I used to be an evangelical Christian, but those beliefs gradually eroded over the course of the Bush presidency (particularly as the Iraq war dragged on) which led me to study more and look at my faith more critically.
Socially, I believe in equal rights for all people regardless of race, gender, sexuality, or religion. I do very strongly believe in separation of church and state, and the protection of our constitutional rights. Even though my experience with church was very positive and I miss it very much, I think strong criticism and examination of religion is very much warranted.
Economically, I suppose I'm fairly moderate. I'm not anti-capitalist, but I do see great value in some socialist policies like universal healthcare, and social security. Like a lot of Americans, my economic education has been pretty weak and I'm only now starting to take formal economic focused courses in school. I'm sure my view will evolve based on more education and research.
In my personal life I have an extremely wide range of interests. I used to be an accomplished athlete in my sport, but my health took a nosedive in my 20's. Right now I'm most interested in regaining my health, learning the ins and outs of computer science, working on my writing, and figuring out how to best use what skills I have to improve my life and the life of others.
