Biography/Intro: I was raised by Objectivist parents and I had a Montessori education up until high school. Rationality, logic, and a commitment to the truth were advocated as primary values. At the age of 15, my family and I went on a road trip and we all took turns reading Atlas Shrugged aloud. Many times we paused to engage in discussion. We did the same thing for The Fountainhead. In 2008, at the age of 29, I organized a study group to more formally and systematical explore Objectivism, philosophy, economics, and psychology.
