I grew up mainly in the City of Manistee, Michigan. There I was interested mainly in sports; running, and soccer, as well as the arts; clarinet, acting. Politically during my highschool years, I adopted my fathers political views which may be summerized as conservative conservationalist. At age 14 I remember trying to stay awake hoping Bush had won the presidential election. After beginning college, I started being less involved in sports and playing clarinet, but becoming more social and being exposed to more diverse opinions. I dated a Michigan State University Students for Economic Justice member with whom I had many long discussions.
During one semester of my bacchaloriat studentship I spent in Konstanz, Germany. There I was very lucky to not only meet and live with other foreigners, but to meet Ebru who is now my wife. I am living with her and going to school at Bo?aziçi Üniversity in Istanbul, Turkey.
I'm very interested in current events, and getting a diverse range of opinions. I appreciate the factually based thoughtful commentary that I receive daily from zmag.
