Suffering from early exposure to the United States government as a military brat, Conor has been spotted up and down the eastern seaboard of the U.S. since early 1989. Living in six different states (NY, RI, VA, MD, ME, FL) and moving seven times, Conor has experienced many of the different regions and cultures within the country. In more current news, he just returned from studying abroad in Istanbul, Turkey, attending Koç Üniversitesi from February to June 2011. His interest in health care piqued when his mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer about five years ago. Since then he has been actively researching and following health care reform and related topics. When not off gallivanting, Conor can be found studying history and various religions at George Mason University, out camping, watching movies, or hanging out with friends and family.
