Jordan Baptist Church

I developed this custom WordPress theme for my church from a design that my wife Rakel made. In addition to all the normal content pages, I created a web application for daily Bible reading which pulls a list of Bible verses and displays them according to the correct day. I was able to find a free MySQL database with the King James Bible and create this application in a relatively short amount of time.

KMDG Tools

This is the web portal that I designed and built for the ad agency that I work for. It was a project that I took on of my own initiative because I noticed that we were struggling to share information in an efficient manner.

Anti-War Position Supports Our Troops

“I don’t think we should go to war in Iraq.” “Why?” “They never did anything to us, Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with 9/11; and we’ve been arming the guy for years. If he’s so bad, why was he our ally when we wanted him to take out Iran? We need to leave it alone already.” “Are you just afraid that you’ll have to go?” This was the last conversation I ever had with a Christian friend of mine about 11 years ago. I was a small and frail looking kid, and I dealt with my share of bullying….

Scent Your Life Mobile App

I developed this app for my wife’s Scentsy business. She wanted a way for her customers to remember which scents they liked, as well as an easy way for them to contact her. She also created an incentive program through the app where her customers can earn reward points.

Liberals Don’t Represent You

Now that I’ve given my thoughts on the conservative movement, I feel like it’s only fair that I critique modern liberalism. I’d say about 80% of the friends I have who are near my age identify themselves as liberal, and I know they probably don’t care for my views (except maybe when I’m trashing George Bush or talking about drug laws). In all honesty, I’ve stopped trying. My facebook wall is constantly filled with economic and social claptrap, and I find it hard to stem the tide with rational discussion anymore. It’s also kind of pointless. Where conservatives are distracted…

A Proverb for John McCain


“He who passes by and meddles in a quarrel not his own is like one who takes a dog by the ears.” – Proverbs 26:17 The meaning of this verse is subtle and profound. A man who takes a dog by the ears has no desirable course of action left. It is impossible to hold on to a dog’s ears for long, and continuing to do so will only serve to enrage it more; yet letting go may cause the animal to attack you. It seems like American Christians support politicians who have not taken the Bible seriously.

Nazis’ll Love It

“The theory of aggregate production, which is the point of the following book, nevertheless can be much easier adapted to the conditions of a totalitarian state [eines totalen Staates] than the theory of production and distribution of a given production put forth under conditions of free competition and a large degree of laissez-faire. This is one of the reasons that justifies the fact that I call my theory a general theory. Since it is based on fewer hypotheses than the orthodox theory, it can accommodate itself all the easier to a wider field of varying conditions.” -John Maynard Keynes introduction…

What We Need is a Housing Bubble

“The basic point is that the recession of 2001 wasn’t a typical postwar slump, brought on when an inflation-fighting Fed raises interest rates and easily ended by a snapback in housing and consumer spending when the Fed brings rates back down again. This was a prewar-style recession, a morning after brought on by irrational exuberance. To fight this recession the Fed needs more than a snapback; it needs soaring household spending to offset moribund business investment. And to do that, as Paul McCulley of Pimco put it, Alan Greenspan needs to create a housing bubble to replace the Nasdaq bubble.”…

Want Employment? Bury Money and Dig It Up Again

“If the Treasury were to fill old bottles with banknotes, bury them at suitable depths in disused coalmines which are then filled up to the surface with town rubbish, and leave it to private enterprise on well-tried principles of laissez-faire to dig the notes up again (the right to do so being obtained, of course, by tendering for leases of the note-bearing territory), there need be no more unemployment and, with the help of the repercussions, the real income of the community, and its capital wealth also, would probably become a good deal greater than it actually is. It would,…

Conservatives, Let’s Talk

Now that the election is over and the smoke has cleared, I feel like it’s time to talk about a few things. Many of my friends know me as a Christian conservative, yet I did not vote for Mitt Romney; and I was actually very critical of him. I feel like it’s a good time now, when we’re as far away from the next election as possible, to discuss a few fatal flaws in the conservative movement and the Republican party specifically. I am not a Republican. I registered Republican to vote for Ron Paul. Otherwise, I have never voted…
