What is liberalism to you?
Liberalism is the baseline philosophy that puts “the individual” at the moral and political center of society. The idea that humans best thrive when they pursue their lives in ways that are meaningful to them and without government infringing on that inalienable right.
Who are you?
I am a man of faith, proud father and lover of all people. Being a single-parent raised, latch key Gen X’er, I learned the value of freedom from an early age. The only thing that held my attention in school was History. I then went on to get a BA in History and taught high school American History for more than ten years. I’ve also served as a campus administrator and district level specialist.
What do you do?
Currently I am the American History teacher at a rural high school, an adjunct professor supervising clinical teachers and the Executive Director of Empowered Pathways. Through Empowered Pathways.
I facilitate workshops and provide coaching and consultations around Empowered Humanity Theory. I also host and produce the Reformation Radio Podcast.
