Andy C is an editor, presenter, and tutor (math and physics).
Andy grew up in Iowa and studied physics and astronomy, then went to Cornell Law School in hopes of making real connections with real people. He worked at the public defender’s office for five years before leaving to practice law on his own. He currently finds that human connection working with people who are in legal trouble and people who are planning for the future. When not at work, Andy enjoys spending as much time outdoors as he can.
Ray L is a writer and editor.
Ray: “I made it through public school and university outwardly unscathed, with two bachelor degrees and a string of acronyms after my name. A recovering perfectionist, I still panic on the inside if I’m not actively engaged in productive and interesting projects. Despite this, procrastination is a major enemy in my life; my primary weapons against it are specific goals, lists, and deadlines (concrete and self-imposed). I’m learning that sitting still bored out of my mind is not an acceptable way to spend the majority of my time, despite what school drilled into me.
My passions are cultures and languages (see B.A.s, anthropology and linguistics), history, historical reenactment, sustainability, and writing/reading. I’ve tutored and taught workshops/courses on a random assortment of topics (Russian, Japanese, the history of Tolkien’s Middle Earth, ancient Egyptian mythology, the shamanic music of Tuva, color guard, etc) to people from ages 5 to 22. I edit professionally and have spent the last year becoming an entrepreneur. Website: Neo Lyceum
