I'm a bit of a goofball, ok, quite the goofball, lol; but an endearing one and I know how to be serious when the moment calls for it. I'm just as at home in a suit and tie as I am in a bathing suit. I love Music: listening, performing, recording. Museums. A long drive down a winding country road on a sunny day. The occasional night out at a bar or club. I've been known to do random research projects, just because, haha. I like to soak up all the great things in the world around me and take one day at a time. I love being out in nature, sports, and the open water. I tend to notice cheesy things, like starlight reflected in a window or the pale chill of the moon on frozen grass. I love sunsets and sunrises; and on a clear warm night, I think I could stare at the stars forever. I love attempting to capture the beauty of the world and share it as I perceive it, through photography, drawing, and music.
I'm passionate about helping people, especially those that I love, my friends, and my family; about my career. I'm passionate about science and the environment and have to admit that I'm a little bit of a nerd about it, haha. A friend recently told me that I approach my science like an art form, as a creative endeavor, I love that observation and just had to include it here 'cause it's so true.
