My self-summary
I'm a midwesterner at heart, I arrive on time, give a firm handshake, and I like winter. Sometimes I miss flatland, but the mountains here are way more fun to explore. I moved here in 2011 to earn a PhD in Phyiscs/Astronomy. After five years, funding cuts, and changing topics/projects I'm finally getting close to finishing!

I recently broke my leg. Just as an FYI I won't be able to do anything that requires walking for a while.
What I’m doing with my life
I work with the Very Large Array (VLA). I'm not looking for aliens, but that would be cool. Professionally I am a radio astronomer, but I am also a hobbyist. I consider myself very fortunate to do what I love. As such I get to travel about once a year. Last year I went to Hawaii and the year before I went to Holland and Belgium. I'm looking to go to Germany, Japan, Australia, Chile, or possibly South Africa next.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at remembering that one time in season 1 and how it relates to this moment in season 5.
