I am a… cabbie / JPMorgan analyst – This week in New York – Time Out New York


I always knew I was going to drop out of my Ph.D. program in medieval history. I was very New York-focused: I felt out of place at Yale, torn away from where I should be. Academia had seemed like such a reach–a dream. Leaving was cataclysmic. The thing I really wanted to do was drive a cab. I’d always had a fascination with it.

Follow your dream, man.
