There, he learned that all restaurants are not open 24 hours a day and buildings could be constructed of materials other than stucco and red barrel tiles.
After finishing college, B. spent a few years conducting research into cancer biology before deciding on a career in medicine. He is currently pursuing his MD somewhere in Southern California.
B. loves scuba diving, taco trucks, and suppressing pheochromcytomas. He maintains an eclectic online journal at http://www.bjustinshier.com where many topics are discussed, including future releases.
