Michael Giardina graduated from UC Davis in Winter 05-06. He majored in English with an emphasis Creative Writing and minored in Philosophy. He then worked at IET making a sculpture of melted Starbucks cups to decorate his cubicle, while serving as the communications analyst for SmartSite. He recently resigned this position to accept a position with Google, Inc.
For two years as an undergraduate, he wrote a Friday column on page two of the Aggie. Copies of his columns can be found lower on this page.
If you'd like to read his book, grab a copy of, Capcalm & Stemshine.

Michael Giardina's publication in Newsweek: Current
One of his nonfiction opinion columns went to print in Newsweek: Current (The Last Word). If you would like to read the column, MSNBC Has picked it up at http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/9073287/site/newsweek/ Amusingly enough, a copy of the column was inserted into a recent issue of the Aggie, but it fell out of most papers.

You can find it in most grocery stores near the fresh chili pepper or in the "Mexican/ethnic food" aisle. Look for large black peppers in large plastic bags —TomNelson
2006-10-02 15:00:27 My name is D.J. and I am a senior at Davis Senior High School. I am taking Journalism 1 and we have to do an in-depth article. My topic is the red light cameras put up in Davis at select intersections. I saw your opinion that you posted about the cameras and I was wondering if I could quote you. I doubt my article will get into the school newspaper but if it were selected, I would ask you first. Please let me know if I can quote you. Thanks, D.J. —DaAg
D.J. - Please feel free to quote my column. I would appreciate it if you would cite the resource, but other than that... go for it! Cheers.
2007-07-21 20:12:20 How about an answer to your almost two-year-old question: "Is the pastor at Grace Valley Christian Center in charge of ASUCD blood drives?" Answer: No, you may be thinking of Gerrit Buddingh, the assistant pastor. The pastor is Rev. PG Mathew, originally from India. —RichLindvall
