I'm a thirty-something academic economist living in Santa Barbara, California. I am passionate about technology, photography, and politics.

I mostly write on topics about which I've spent some time researching and learning. I write to share what I've learned with my friends, the web community, and my future self. I occasionally write on my personal beliefs and opinions, mostly for self-reflection later, but also for that imaginary reader who cares what I think.

Please contact me directly with any commentary! Email me at, or find foreverlarz on Instagram and Twitter.

If you share my appreciation of handwritten correspondence, please email me and ask for my mailing address. I always try to write back in kind.
