In 2011 Chip Skowron was sentenced to five years in prison for conspiracy to commit securities fraud. It was a spectacular fall for a hugely successful hedge fund manager and medical doctor.

Skowron has embraced a new life, even as he misses the past. And it’s not the life of a Greenwich, Connecticut titan of capital he misses. He misses the simplicity and fellowship of life in prison.
