Meeting a Hero

nathaniel branden

I’ve made it a point in my life to meet my heroes. I’ve been tremendously successful in this regard. Meeting Nathaniel Branden however, was truly a highlight; one I will remember for the rest of my life.

Nathaniel’s work has been immensely influential in my development as a man. So much that I would say it is only rivaled by Ayn Rand’s influence.

As fate would have it, the best presentation I have given up to this point in my life, was based on Nathaniel’s work, which was my presentation at The 21 Convention 2012 of Melbourne Australia.

When Nathaniel met Ayn Rand at about 19 years old, he said that he felt he had “come home”. In large part, this is how I feel about my meeting with Nathaniel.
