Historian of the Early American Republic

I am intersted in all things whaling and whaling adjacent, primarily in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

I'm probably way to impatient to make this look at all interesting.

If whales did exist, they would be better than sharks.

Orcas are not whlaes. Orcas do exist. This is why they cannot be whales. Willy is indeed free.

Never trust a dolphin.

Trust me, I'm an expert.
