Growing up, my father took every opportunity to impress on me a simple idea: good writing is clear thinking made visible. His point never resonated during those formative years because, at the time, all writing was five paragraphs long with a thesis statement, body of evidence, and conclusion. It was only during my freshman year of college in 2004, when Facebook privately opened up its doors, that I began to recognize the importance of writing, and its role in how you, the faithful reader, perceive me. This blog embodies my father’s lesson and provides a vetting ground for my personal thoughts. All posts are private by default, selected articles are shared publicly on occasion.
