I'm an explorer, I like genetics and biotechnology. I gather around people who are smarter than me and learn and listen and aspire to be great. I seldom participate loudly, but I leave my mark in whispers, trying to leave a better knowledge or undestanding or feeling about anything. I enjoy intellectual conflict. I love to laugh. I believe in karma and paying it forward. I forge my own destiny accompanied by the family and friends I've gathered along the way, and always *always* welcome more of them.
