Biochemist, writer/blogger, occasional pianist, interested in all sciences, music, art, literature, history, and general knowledge

I enjoy classical music, smooth jazz, all music from the 60s up through the 90s, long walks in nature, reading, blogging, documentaries (Particle Fever, Ken Burns' Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies), bridge (the card game), comedy improv (Whose Line Is It Anyways?), 3D puzzles, and quiz bowl. My role models include Rosalind Franklin, Richard Feynman, Nikola Tesla, Carl Sagan, and Oliver Sacks.

I love seeing the marriage of diverse fields and strive to actualize E.O. Wilson's idea of consilience. Feel free to write me about anything. Happy listening!
