My extracurricular activities include:

-I am advocacy chair for the Healthcare Rights Coalition, a grassroots organization of patients fighting for our rights to healthcare.

-I wrote an essay selected by The Atlantic's "The American Idea" contest in 2007. The version on their site is condensed from my original.

- I was asked to contribute an essay to The Reformed Institute's 2011 summer colloquium, "Whither the PC-USA". I questioned the relevance of denominations in a post-international world.

-Member of Tidal Potomac Fly Rodders, and somewhat avid angler. Learn how to tie my SiliSpoon at Rob Snowhite's blog.

-Bassist for alt-country heartthrobs The Treads.
