I spent many years an independent researcher, usually located in the SF Bay Area, until mid-2021 when I joined Roam Research. I think about a constellation of topics under the broad headings of history, ideology, and psychology. I’m fascinated by media and storytelling, and wonder what role these can play in civilization and society. You can check out some of my video experiments here.

This website contains some of my writing. I also run an active mailing list with more essays and other content.

I’m also active on Twitter, run a weekly talk show (hiatus as of 11/2021), and make YouTube videos about philosophy and spirituality.
