About the author: John Curley

John Curley (that's me) has been Burning since the relatively late date of 2004, and in 2008 I spent the better part of a month on the playa, documenting the building and burning of Black Rock City in words and pictures. I loved it, and I've been doing it ever since. I was a newspaper person in a previous life, and I spent many years at the San Francisco Chronicle. At the time I left, in 2007, I was the deputy managing editor in charge of Page One and the news sections of the paper. Since then, I've turned a passion for photography into a second career. I shoot for editorial, commercial and private clients. I've also taught a little bit, including two years at UC Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism and a year at San Francisco State University. I live on the San Mateo coast, just south of San Francisco in California.

    Old Fart,Oxford is nice, but its awful cliquey. If you’re not born and rasied, you’re almost always on the outside looking in. I enjoyed it, though. I found a group I fit in with. I wasn’t a Greek, but I highly recommend that in the South, you do so. I was there around 3.5 years. That was long enough! But during the summer, business was S-L-O-W, and there was NOTHING going on, except for a summer festival where all the restaurant owners set up a booth and sold our best items on the Square.Wish I had a boat then, LOL! A boat would have made the summers go by faster. A good time to travel, too, but you had to drive a LONG way to get to anywhere. An hour to get to Tupelo to shop, and Memphis to spend the day. I would recommend a visit for a football home game, spend a long weekend, but that’s as far as I would go.
