Introduction I'm an 24 year old engineer at a new rocket startup company based out of Silicon valley. My wife Tiffany and I got married over three years ago and we now have three children, Jarom, Jonathan, and James. I'm a classical liberal of the Bastiat stripe, with some slight leanings toward Mises and Rothbard. This tends to put me at odds with nearly everyone, but makes life more interesting. I'm also an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and I served a two-year mission for the church in Olongapo, Philippines from Aug 2000-Aug 2002.
Interests Commercial Space Development, Rocket Design, Entrepreneurism, Austrian Economics, Political Theory, Religion, and History.
Favorite Movies Lord of the Rings series, Star Wars series, Gods and Generals, Shrek 1 and 2, Ever After, and the Harry Potter series.
Favorite Music U2, classical, anything but country.
Favorite Books "The Law" by Fredric Bastiat, "The Lord of the Rings" by JRR Tolkein, "The Chronicles of Narnia" by CS Lewis, "Pride and Prejudice" and "Sense and Sensibility" by Jane Austen, the "Ender's Game" series and the "Ender's Shadow" series by Orson Scott Card, "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" by Robert Heinlein, "The Art of War" by Sun Tzu, and The Book of Mormon.
