My name is John Lawrence Radford. I am a 24 year old guy, living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. My passion is thinking about and discussing interesting, heady topics, in an intimate way with anyone who’s willing. I also love learning about and discovering new facets of the world. My interests range from engineering and physics to philosophy and art. I like to think of myself as a curious, insightful, and conscientious person. My project with this blog is to give those who stumble across it an introduction to myself and my thoughts. On this blog you’ll also find several samples of my academic writing.
