Hi! I'm Kevin and I'm really tall.

My long-term interests are in global politics, particularly in the political philosophy of global institutions.

That said, life has taken me down a long and circuitous path, and so I've spent much of the past few years focused on Norse mythology, the significance of Thor in Western culture, and how Viking culture did and didn't resemble the public image we have of Vikings.

I've also recently renewed my interest in writing as an art form, and the ancient Norse texts have inspired additional interest in storytelling and narrative and their influences on culture. It's all circular, and I see it all as part of the life-long project to better understand global politics and global justice.

You might also encounter me getting geeky about superheroes, science fiction, the perfect hamburger, or subjects yet undiscovered.

In terms of occupations, I've sometimes dabbled in health care, technical support, and higher education, so if necessary, I can fix your laptop while I give a presentation on federalism and health policy. Not that you'd need me to do that, but I say it's a skill worth having.

Email me! We'll talk about why Superman is better than Batman or why the UN Security Council is poorly designed and badly executed. It'll be epic!
