Profile Information

Interests
I have one primary interest: my family. With that is a load of other interests that revolve around trying to figure out how to be the best father and husband that I can be. So I'm interested in parenting topics, as well as emergency preparedness (in my role as provider).

Personally, I strive to become well-rounded in all domains of life. I have a lot to say about that, because it pretty much encompasses everything -- there is a time and a place for everything.

I like to travel, especially to where I can snorkel, scuba dive, or body board.

Professionally, I'm an antitrust attorney working at the intersection of law, economics, and intellectual property rights.
Books
"Wild at Heart" and "Way of the Wild Heart" by John Eldredge
"Willpower is Not Enough" by A. Dean Byrd and Mark D. Chamberlain
Movies
One of my favorite movies of all time is "A Beautiful Mind." I also like the rarely-heard-of "Marvin's Room." I like movies that make you think.

Generally though, I end up watching Disney/Pixar with my kids or romantic comedies with my wife.
Music
I'm all over the board on this. I DON'T like heavy metal, hard rock, or rap/hip-hop.
