About me

Gender MALE
Industry Education
Occupation Economic Development, Small town law practice (part time), Adjunct Professor (Business and Poli Sci)
Location Flemingsburg, Kentucky, United States
Introduction I work for Morehead State University, a small state school serving the Appalachian region of East Ky. I'm the director of a program known as the Innovation Center. We work with technology and innovation based clients to help them grow their businesses. I also moonlight as a small town lawyer doing mostly criminal law. My work and my geography has convinced me that globalization is good and is changing things at unprecedented rates but that not all groups of citizens are equally prepared for the changes. In order to foster globalization on a wider scale, the central government (i.e. the state) must reform to create a new model based on the widespread distribution of the means of opportunity.
Interests Avid bibliophile, Entrepreneurship, innovation, how technology is changing our world, the Welfare State, and all things Appalachia and Eastern Kentucky.
Favorite Movies Casablanca, Dr. Zhivago, Godfather, Anything Quentin Tarantino, Rome (the mini series), The Spaghetti Westerns
Favorite Music Gogol Bordello, Ennio Morricone, Gangstagrass.
Favorite Books Alan Furst is my favorite author, but I generally like books in categories. My favorite subjects are works of history on the following periods: Ancient Greece (early masters of globalization), Ancient Rome, the American Revolutionary War, the US Civil War, World War 1 (the end of a golden era), World War 2, and the grimy 60s and 70s.
