A Bit About Me

Father of two sons, husband, intrepid explorer, mountain conqueror, daring swashbuckler… okay maybe  the last three are profound exaggerations.

I’m not an intellectual and my writings probably reflect that. I’m just a normal  guy who still enjoys metal – despite being 29 – trying to enjoy life as much possible.

Life, culture, politics, and history involves some tough conversations. Far too often it’s the insane people talking about controversial subjects instead of the sane ones.  I’d like to lend a hand toward changing that as well as the echo chamber screaming that dominates most internet discourse.

Much of the manosphere and “Red Pill” on the Dissident Right as of late is now oversaturated with men who never got past the anger stage, supposed alphas larger than life doing more laps than Michael Phelps, LARPers who rant about the virtues of white women, and theorists who keep talking about rebuilding western culture, yet never actually do anything.    Some of them in fact actually hate women.

Enough of that.

I’m the same person face-to-face that am I online – only friendlier, genuine, and simply telling people what I see when they ask me.

Brutal honesty is something people find fascinating, because it’s so rare.  We all have to smile for our Facebook statuses after all.  Be hated for who you actually are, not for who people think you might be.

Social media might not stand by you in turbulent times, but if you are my friend, I’ll always have your back.  While I’m there with you,  I do enjoy engaging conversations, strong coffee, fine whiskey, and the occasional nerding out and enjoyment of “heavy music” when I have the free time.  Raising two young boys is a challenge – especially in the diaper stage.

 What is Banter Loud & Proud?

Here, I share with you much of the sordid details of my life.  I can’t advocate for us to rebuild our culture if I’m not doing it myself.   Being far from perfection, I’ll tell you what marriage is really like, share some hard learned knowledge, cover current events,  and point you in the direction of wiser men than myself.

Now, I’m no one special. I work a normal job, converse with a lot of different people each day, and come home to my family.   I share my experiences with you as I look to  help fellow men around me find purpose.

When I discovered the “manosphere,” I had little in the way of any success with women.  Utilizing the wisdom of the men I’ve met through it, I found a great wife who I now have two sons with.   Hopefully, I can share what helped me with the rest of you.

I’m not a dating coach or guidance counselor and I don’t sell anything on here.  I just tell it how it is.  The world is broken and in great distress.

Much of what I see angers and disturbs me – often the plight of the men around me.  No one cares about them, but now that I have 2 sons, I not only have to care, but do something to alleviate this.

Instead of putting my head in the sand and enjoying the schadenfreude, I put what skills I have to work in pursuit of building a legacy, identity, and sharing the work of others that are doing everything they can to help us rebuild.


“Cheers to all my sexless, misogynistic, racist, basement dwelling loser friends. May the effervescent orange glow of Cheetos dust highlight our neck beards forever.”

Music That I Enjoy:

Most of the music I listen to still is metal. Here’s some of my favorites to jam to –

I also really still love my metal. I thought I would grow out of it, but I still love it. Hopefully my sons will as well – considering they are going to get a heavy dose of it.  (In this case more hardcore.)

This is more metal though.
