“What is important to me is that I can serve as a multiplier of ideas that are true, good, and beautiful.”

~ Moritz Muecke


I came to Hillsdale College to benefit from its strong focus on the principles of a Great Books education and rigorous study of American politics in all its manifestations: intellectual, practical, and institutional. I also have a deep interest in classical political philosophy and ancient history as written by thinkers like Thucydides.
