About Me

CURRENT MISSION

do all the physics, explore all the bay area.

ABOUT ME

i'm interning at berkeley lab in physics, and it's awesome!

before, i was in maine adding some math to my physics studies. another turn at grad school in physics is ahead!

i'm an independent vegetarian who enjoys exploring in general and in particular investigating little-known, unassuming areas with me, my camera, and perhaps some good company. i really enjoy thoughtful, insightful conversation but also appreciate quiet and solitude. i love to take pictures of places and people, to try and capture the beauty, interesting moments, and oddities around us. my photography website is http://www.meganlongphotography.com if you'd like to check it out.

PHILOSOPHY

do not treat others as you would not want to be treated yourself.
