David Camp is a cpa (Canada'86; USA'96) and MBA (Schulich'88) who toiled thirty years in the corporate salt mines, counting beans and telling stories to the auditors and whatnot. Now he spends his time growing trees; thinking curmudgeonly thoughts and occasionally shouting them into the intertubes; and maintaining body and soul through work and movement. A believer in discussion as key to civil life, he invites comment and argument.
