Introduction I graduated from Shimer in '96 giving the darkest, dourest commencement address that was all about community. Go figure. What else? I've bounced around a bit since gratuation, living in Korea and then went to University of Chicago for a Masters in Social Science. I haven't finished my thesis yet. Please don't ask me about it, it's a very sore subject. I'm also halfway through writing a novel, that feels like I was born and trained to write. I've been doing really well for the past year or so and have got that real sense of destiny going on. You want to know more, you ask me.
