Conrad Salonites

Review Editor


A California native raised on the Western Slopes of the Sierra Nevada, Conrad received a BA in both English and Russian Language & Literature from UCLA. Enrolling to be an actuary and dabbling for two years in computer science and discrete mathematics, a summer in Saint Petersburg, Russia turned Conrad toward a life of letters. However, despite the prominence of the pen in his life, his affinity for technology has never been diluted. Conrad has worked as an Audio/Visual programmer for local theaters and concerts. The skills he developed in that role, those of strong attention to detail, careful planning and consideration, extensive testing, and the importance of research have stuck with him throughout his academic and work careers. When he isn't testing products or writing reviews, Conrad can be found taking long trips into the Sierras, enjoying obscure genres of music, muttering to himself in Russian, or delving into the corpus of world literature.
