In a nutshell:
Chappaqua, New York
B.A., History & Classics
Quinnipiac University School of Law
J.D. magna cum laude
My interests include English literature, Classical literature and philosophy, constitutional law, the continuing relevance of liberal arts education, trap and skeet shooting, fencing (foil), sailboats, the Yes album “90125," Errol Morris documentaries, and getting into arguments with people who think that Ayn Rand was one of the greatest minds of the 20th century.
I am a liberal, in the old-fashioned,mid-20th-century sense of the word. I usually vote Democratic, but that party has recently ingested dangerous amounts of the morally psychotropic doctrines of identity politics, critical race & gender theory, and “intersectionality." I believe in individual liberty, the rule of law, Keynesian economics, and modest foreign policy. I appreciate conservatism, in the Burkean sense, insofar as conservatism is properly understood as a type of liberalism, but unfortunately no American political party presently practices real conservatism.
