The following is my list of disclosures so that any conflicts of interest are public. The ideas and beliefs I post on this site are mine and not necessarily those of my employer, my church, or any other organization.


I am currently employed by Adams State University.


I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I often post articles discussing or referencing my religious beliefs. Those beliefs mine and are the not necessarily those of the Church itself.


I consider myself libertarian with conservative leanings and my posts are written from that perspective. Until 10 September 2015, I was a registered Republican and was semi-active in the local party. I sometimes write about politicians and candidates but I am not paid to do so by any politician or campaign.

From 12 February 2011 until 6 May 2011, I was chairman of the Alamosa County Republican Party.

Paid Promotions/Affiliate Programs

I am not paid by any person or organization to post content espousing one view or another. If I am ever paid to do so, I will point that out.


I have written a number of publications for Packt Publishing.


Loving Hands Crochet

Loving Hands Crochet is my wife’s store on Etsy. We would both appreciate it if you were to go buy some of her homemade products.

Digital Ocean

This site is hosted at Digital Ocean and I recommend them through their affiliate program.

Music Free Gaming

These are specific to Music Free Gaming.


I have a Patreon page for people who want to be monthly supporters of Music Free Gaming.


I use Streamlabs for many of the features of the Music Free Gaming streams. I also use them to process tips and for the merch store.

I occasionally have the opportunity to promote products on a stream or in a video. That list, such as it is, is below. It is also noted in the video itself.


I have streamed to raise money for the following charities.

  • Children’s Miracle Network (as part of Extra Life)
  • American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
