You did What in High School?

David has always been curious. “What if…?” was his favorite question as a child. In high school that curiosity got him into trouble, in college it … well it got him into college! But all of the history, philosophy, literature, theater, language, economics, anthropology, and political science classes combined didn’t assuage that curiosity, they honed it. He thought more schooling might finally get him answers but his Master’s degree mostly means he just asks more troubling questions.

He also discovered early on that writing novels and lyrics and short stories and articles and anything at least gives him the excuse to pursue those questions. And the answers he has found would fill a book! Well, more than one, to be accurate.
