What about me… let’s see. I’ve been a science nerd pretty much my whole life — as a boy, I thought I would be an astronomer. As a college freshman in engineering, I decided to become a chemist. As a chemistry graduate student, I thought I’d learn biochemistry and molecular biology. As a protein chemist, I thought I’d become a structural biologist and after being a structural biologist for a while, I thought I’d learn endocrinology and become involved in drug discovery. I wonder what I’ll decide to be next… maybe I’ll get a telescope and close the circle.
Maybe that just means I’ve really embraced the phrase “life-long learner”. A few years ago, I learned to blog and spent the majority of that time on vox. Now, that blog lives here. A perusal of my tags will show the things I like: books, movies, tv, tennis, the Philadelphia Eagles (more of a love-hate thing), the Phillies, science, science fiction, fantasy, travel, and some more recent passions — cocktails and piano. I’m sure there will be more new interests in the future — there always seem to be!
