I was born and raised in Utah. The family and society I grew up in, in the end, didn’t fit well with my personality. It was faith based and dogmatic. This didn’t make sense to me, so I went a different direction.
I came to Stoicism late in life, but once I started studying it in earnest, I found that much of it really resonates with my personality and way of thinking. I find it satisfying and effective.
I currently reside in Washington State. I enjoy the Pacific Northwest, the natural beauty, outdoor activities, etc. I have a nice property with a view of Mt Saint Helens. I love my place.
I have a BSEE from the University of Utah and work as a Process Engineer in a steel mill in the Portland, Oregon area.
