One Amazing Thing I've Done

A humpback whale breached not 30 feet from the whale watching tour I was on in Maui a couple of years ago. The world below, every time I get on a plane (and whoever says flying is boring is already dead inside, although I agree the process of getting to the plane sucks). I made glow-in-the-dark E.coli bacteria a couple of months ago. My nephews are amazing. And my sister. And most people, come to that.

Teach, Learn, Share

Simple juggling. Willing to teach basic Danish if anyone is remotely interested in learning. Molecular biology. Basic organic chemistry. Software development skills for life scientists. Guide to FDA regulatory requirements and the future of clinical trial design ...
