Athletic Ability: I lift kids and walk everywhere? Played soccer recreationally through college. More heart than athletic ability.

Sartorial Style:

Favorite Beverage and Consumption Freq: Need to do this more. Like a variety of whiskey's but rarely drink.

Political Philosophy: Vaguely ordoliberal and vaguely traditionalist. I do not believe in easy answers. There are strengths and weaknesses to government, for-profit and non-profit solutions. I believe that good, ethical leadership is undervalued both in the private and public sector. There are two sides to this: 1) we should select/elect/appoint strong ethical leaders, 2)success of an institution may be the result of personnel and not structure.

Scale and bureaucracy have costs and risks, this is true of both large government and large business. There are many cases where network effects and returns to scale makes these institutions necessary. We need to take seriously the accountability trade offs when comparing private, non-profit and government solutions. This applies to health care, education, banking and a many other issues.

Pro-life, pro-human dignity.

Religious Philosophy: There are some things I can figure out and some I can't. I have faith, discipline and an ethic more than a philosophy. Catholic and love the Eucharist. Value the Church's social teaching.

Musical Favorites: Paul Simon, local folk.
