Year of the Whip

I'm an unapologetic soft atheist which for me usually translates into anti-theist. I'm also a rationalist and to the dismay of my atheist friends, I'm also a supporter of the ancient astronaut argument with a personal interest in the study of theism, ancient Earth history, and the simulation theory. My professional pursuits include advertising and marketing with an emphasis on digital marketing. I've been described as a geek and I enjoy video games, science, and history.

"The Whip" was a title given to me by friends I met while playing a Browser Based MMORPG. It was a response to my tendency to verbally lash out at other players. Since then my identity as Whane The Whip has grown substantially and is now used in real life more often than my birth name.
