Early life and career
Pink grew up in the small suburban town of Bexley, Ohio, outside Columbus, and graduated from Bexley High School in 1982. He received his B.A. from Northwestern University, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He was also named Truman Scholar. He then received his J.D. from Yale Law School in 1991, where he was Editor-in-Chief of the Yale Law & Policy Review.
Deciding not to practice law, Pink worked in several positions in politics and economic policy. He served as an aide to Secretary of Labor Robert Reich, and from 1995 to 1997 he was chief speechwriter for Vice President Al Gore. In 1997, he quit his job to go out on his own, an experience he described in the 1998 Fast Company article, Free Agent Nation, which became the basis of his first book.
