My friend Steve always makes me blush when he introduces me to new people because he makes me sound so amazing, I wish he were here right now to write my self-summary. I'll close my eyes and try to remember the last introduction he did. --- This is Mags. She's an astrophysicist, photographer, massage therapist, high school teacher, and roller derby dame. Oh and she's also really cool. :) --- Yeah, that seems right (Thanks Steve!). Update: I've moved from teaching in the classroom to working in education outreach at Hopkins, which is totally awesome and what I wanted to do when I moved to Baltimore, so life is even more awesome now.
I have been called eclectic by a few of my friends (and more than one enemy...), but my favorite term for my multi-faceted personality has got to be "Blendee". This was given to me by a former student who witnessed my ability to "blend in" to the crew while we were filming at the IgNobel awards ceremony a few years ago.
I am always up for new adventures and I love learning new skills (anyone want to teach me to weld?).
I am a daydream believer, and a former roller derby queen. Oh wait, I can't forget the karaoke addiction.... It's been bad at times, I'm going through a good spell right now, let's see how long that lasts.
