    How to Be AwesomeAfter a brief move to southern California (to play shows and record with the band I was in) and a stint at the excellent Santa Monica Community College, I transferred to UC Berkeley. I spent five intense but blissful semesters there, studying with some of the most amazing professors. I wrote an honors thesis with Professor John MacFarlane and used that to apply to graduate school for the PhD. I was able to see it all through, and was eventually extremely lucky to land a job at the University of San Diego.
