I had an absolute blast this year at the 7th Australian Libertarian Society Friedman Conference, co-hosted by the World Taxpayers Associations and the Australian Taxpayers’ Alliance. I participated in two panels – one on the Drug War and another on Agorism. I also moderated a panel on the utilization of Social Media. Video of these panels will eventually be posted.
Besides the speeches, however, my focus was on capturing the attendees and moments of the conference. In 2017, I attended ALSFC with Judd Weiss, and we both spoke and photographed the event (the 2017 album can be found here). This year, Judd was busy with our company (Lit.Club), and so I came out solo.
Not only was the conference a blast (with daytime speeches, cocktail receptions in the evenings, a banquet, a yacht cruise in Sydney Harbor…) but there was also a bonus day the Monday after the conference where we got to do a Wildlife Walkabout and meet Koalas and Kangaroos as well as visit several wineries for wine tasting!

I just returned from an eight day trip to Australia where I photographed the Friedman Conference, Australia’s big liberty event! I also gave two speeches on two panels and moderated one! I took 6600 photographs, and will be working for … Continue reading Australian Libertarian Society – Post Event
This year was my 4th Anarchapulco. It was also my first in which I was a main stage speaker. The previous three Anarchpulcos, I have been one of the official photographers of the event – my photos can be found on my Facebook – 2018, 2017 (on Judd’s Facebook, I was his second shooter), 2016. If you saw my speech, you may have noticed I used photos of Anarchapulco (both from 2017 & 2018) from both Judd and myself (mostly him), as the background images in my presentation.
I love Anarchapulco. Every year has been a blast – lots of fun, good people, good energy, and a little bit of a vacation. I spend at least one day at the beach or the pool, skipping speeches and just enjoying the environment with mojitos and good conversation.

So, last year, at Anarchapulco 2018, my beloved Judd Weiss and I took photos for the event. I helped him with selecting choice shots from the thousands of photos he took, and sent him *my* small selection of fully edited … Continue reading @Anarchapulco 2018 #Anarchapulco
I flew down to Houston for the Libertarian Party of Texas State Convention on April 13 & 14th, where I spoke on Social Media and Libertarianism on Saturday morning. I was around for Friday night and all day Saturday, and … Continue reading Libertarian Party of TX State Convention Photos
I still haven’t found a recording of my speech (perhaps there is none), but Judd and I finally edited and published our shots from the Free State Project’s summer event: Porcfest. He published them in an album which you can … Continue reading PorcFest 2017 Photos
Inspired by a single post on Facebook, I’ve decided to make this the running list of improvements I think every libertarian conference should make. Note: Some conferences do these things already. These things may apply to non-libertarian conferences. I know there’s a lot to be thinking about when putting together a conference, and this is not an inclusive list – it is simply something I notice lacking in some conferences because I’m lucky enough to attend over a dozen every year. 1. Double-sided badges. If you’ve got people’s names in a clear envelope on a lanyard, please make it double-sided. … Continue reading The Libertarian Conference Improvement List
