I am an independent scholar who lives in Phoenix, Arizona. I received my Ph.D. in Government from Georgetown University in 2008, and I am currently working on various writing projects in American Political Thought, Ethical Philosophy, and a critically sympathetic work on Distributism. My interests include American Political Development, Traditionalist Thought, Constitutional Law, Southern Americana, Virtue Ethics, Natural Law, Political Theology, and many other topics within the history of political theory. I also frequently read economic theory (only the qualitative stuff) and follow the trends in the macro-economy.
With me in Phoenix is my darling wife, Mrs. Elizabeth Puckett Haworth of Columbus, Mississippi, our soon-to-be-born first child, and our English Bull Dog, Lord ‘Finley’ Nelson. My hobbies include voracious reading, minimal gun collecting, and dreaming about our future farm that might be located somewhere in beautiful Mississippi.
