A capable, if not qualified, honest guy. And maybe the next
Who is RVB?
Tired of politicians? Me too. That's why I'm running for president of the United States even though I'm quite arguably the least qualified person alive. I'm smart and also quite terrible at lying. Unfortunately, the list of qualifications basically ends there. That's why I just tell the truth, even if it isn’t in my own best interest.
I’m from Kansas City. I’m married to a Dr. and have two amazing daughters. I'm an Obama democrat. I’ve written blogs about how I ended up at KU (link), how I became a chemical engineer (link), and I'll keep writing them so that you get a better feel for who I am.
I worked as a petroleum engineer and then a high frequency trader for most of my career. I have a degree in chemical engineering and an MBA from the University of Kansas. Oil and finance, and a Democrat? Weird, isn't it? Not Ivy League and still running for President? Uh huh. It's the truth though, and that's all I have for you.
Honestly, I have none of the typical qualifications to be president and you probably shouldn’t vote for me. But even a $5 donation can help us further our message that honesty and integrity are essential for leadership, so please donate if you can.
And I’m going to be the next president of the United States of America (but probably not really).
