About Me:

Hi. Let me tell you about myself.  I was a history major at Brigham Young University.  I first created this page in order to publish
my senior thesis (updated 17 Apr 2005).  The rest of this stuff just sort of grew over the years.  I enjoy publishing my research in this way.  I hope you find something here interesting.  Please email me to let me know what you think.

I still like to research and write on historical topics.  I've done some research and writing on my own family history, including my mission to Venezuela.  I like science fiction, music and movies.
