My name is Lucien Maverick. I am a self-termed creative intellectual. I have dedicated the bulk of my life to increasing my awareness of the various topics that interest me. There are so many. As it stands, I am predominantly interested in stories, politics, and puzzles. Life full of puzzles that the observant eye can solve. I am an atheist, naturally. A truly skeptical person can’t accept anything on faith. And needing facts to prove religion is crazy. I am also a skeptic, and proud of it. What I want to do with my life is to make a difference. To open up people’s minds to new ideas, and to talk through old ones. That’s my idea, anyway. Kind of a slow start.
I am a college grad who got my Bachelor’s in Journalism and Public Communication, with the focus being on the public communication side. Now I’m trying to find a stable career. You have NO idea how difficult this is proving to be. The job market is a brutal mistress, and Lady Luck doesn’t like me
One of the things about me is that I try and take in both sides of the political spectrum. I am sternly liberal, but I follow all sides so I don’t have to worry about living inside an echo chamber. Too many people only have people they follow who feed their confirmation bias. That is not something I mean to fall into. So you can call me a lefty who doesn’t just take part in the circlejerk on the left. Think that one out at your leisure.
My career goal is…well, I don’t quite know. Writing is what I like to do best, but that sure as hell doesn’t pay bills anymore. Maybe I will find work with a socio-political publication, offering up my random and ranting opinions on that kind of stuff. Or perhaps I can go work for a non-proft group or something. I also have a knack for publication design and graphic design, that I would love to put to work for a company. Given my focus on public communication in college, I also am pretty good at PR work. Wish there were some of those jobs around. Oh well, one step at a time.
