Thomas Boyd (T2008)
Thanks for welcoming me to The Reading Odyssey. My friend and music mentor Pat Wictor invited me to join, and I’m looking forward to the books and the lively exchange of ideas. I’m currently writing and performing songs, producing concerts, finishing the script of a stage play with music, and enjoying visits with grandchildren and dogs. I got to this wonderful place on a path that included a U.S. Senate staff position, a White House consultancy, management of charitable giving and community assistance for Wall Street firms, serving as dean of an experimental college, and similar adventures. My undergraduate and graduate degrees are in English, fine arts, media and political science. New York City has been home for 28 years.
