||I graduated from Boston College in 1988, then got teaching certification at UH and taught in Katy ISD. Junior high not so fun-- hormone central! I then became a Peace Corps volunteer, teaching English in Estonia from '93 to '95. Great experience-- and, most importantly, I met my wife, Epp, there. Then to grad school for int'l relations at Tufts. Since 1997 I've been in finance in Boston. I'm currently a high yield (aka junk bond) analyst at Pioneer Investments, where I'm trying to triage the moderate junk from the truly junky from the living dead.
