Author of St. Martin's Press novel Campusland, Johnston grew up in Manhattan and went to Yale. From there, Wall Street (Salomon Brothers of Liar's Poker fame) and a stint in Hong Kong. On the side, he opened a couple of nightclubs in NYC. One, called the Baja, had a great run. After that, he started and ran a quant hedge fund for about a decade, taking some time to teach as an adjunct at Yale. Somewhere in there he penned a fun little book on golf betting games. Growing bored of finance, Johnston shifted gears to tech, co-founding two startups. He lives in Westchester with his wife and three kids.
