About Ramsin

I am born. Edgewater Hospital, 1981. Now, Edgewater Hospital has been closed after a Medicare fraud scandal. Some day I will write a short story about that fact to shoehorn some kind of symbolism.

I grew up all along Devon Avenue, from the lake to the airport, and went to the University of Illinois at Chicago. Worked as a union organizer and political consultant in Chicago and in 15 different states. I attended Chicago-Kent College of Law, where I won some awards and got some papers published. I am currently on the precipice of lawyer-ing, with special affection (but note that state bar associations do not recognize specialties, a la doctors for instance) for land use, administrative, municipal, environmental, and labor law.
