Military brat. Started reading National Review at age 14. Formative influence, plus conservative parents and grandparents. First post-college job was in accounting for a small company where I saw up close and personal how hard it was to make a profit every month. Currently work in finance in a Fortune 100 company. Married, one adult stepdaughter, two cats, 8 beloved nieces/nephews. It is because of them that I fear so much for the future of our country.
I'm an economic + national security + social conservative: the trifecta!
