Description

I am well-versed in Objectivism. I have lived in Brazil for over 30 years. Now I'm in the USA (Evanston for now) and I have traveled a lot.

I did Objectivism the hard way - full immediate conversion, life experiences in another culture taken straight with no chaser, high-adrenaline detours, then lots of online activity in the Objectivist and libertarian subculture.

The two Randian experiences that had the deepest impact on me were reading Atlas Shrugged in my teens without having read anything by her previously, then The Passion of Ayn Rand by Barbara Branden right when it came out, when I was highly enmeshed with some of the curve balls life throws at you.

I have worked in classical music, entertainment, translation and international finance in addition to some pretty offbeat activities. I have been described as an adventurer. That sounds about right.

I met the love of my life, Katherine Lynne Wheeler (Kitten) on SoloHQ. We are engaged to be married and we now live together.

What I most hate in life is hypocrisy. What I most love is finding truth - about myself, others and the universe I live in - and living it.

(On screen the movie is actually titled The Anthem, perhaps intentionally different from the book.) Despite low production values, I think it is excellent. It evokes somewhat the beginning of the We the Li... (See the whole review)
