I think I lead a pretty interesting life. A lot of conscious effort goes into this, though sometimes it's just luck. Studying in Canada and France and working in Alaska were all well thought out before hand, but the conference in Costa Rica last July popped up on its own. Sometimes the unexpected isn't so great (e.g. an extended illness in my mid 20's), but it still keeps things interesting.
By day I'm a marine biologist specialized in ecology and by night I am also a marine biologist because I love what I do. Other passions include orchids, kayaking, chocolate, wild berries, hiking, and French.
I enjoy good conversations on a variety of topics including environmental conservation, (reasonable) politics, renewable energies, philosophy of life, and feminism/gender identity.
I am independent, creative, and have little concern for being normal. That person carrying a fig tree on the bus--yeah, that's me.
