Kelvin Lynch is the world's most experienced dilettante, having gone through life sampling its offerings and gathering numerous fancy degrees from expensive universities that have rendered him utterly unprepared for the real world. He is about to become an attorney for some odd reason. He seems to enjoy writing, and people tell him he is pretty good at it. Mr. Lynch is currently the International LGBT Issues writer for Examiner.com, where his work is appreciated by the conservative site's dozens of gay and lesbian readers.
