Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I joke that I'm on my 3rd career.
My first was my major: I got my Bachelors in Astronomy.
Unfortunately, I'm mildly dyslexic and it destroyed my ability to
do high level math so my GPA wasn't too stellar (no pun intended)
so continuing with that wasn't an option (although I still write
for the astronomy news website Universe Today).
So my second was going into teaching. I currently have my license
and am working to find a teaching position but it hasn't happened
Now I'm an inventory manager for a company that's a cross between
"Antiques Roadshow" and "Pawn Stars".

equations rewrite themselves, it's a bitch. But by most people's
standards I'm a math genius.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) The internet
3) Free time
4) Good food
6) Did I mention the internet?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The best way to get people to understand scientific thinking and
logic and why people distract themselves with poor thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am

I don't smile very often. It's not because I'm not in a bad mood. I
