I'm a researcher and artist living and working in San Francisco, California. 

Here's what else – I once attended a very good reading by essayist and cartoonist Tim Kreider, during which he lamented, “...in America you’re only allowed to be one thing.”

I remember thinking “ah!” and nodding in agreement.

What I mean to say is that I am many things, which is sometimes difficult. Art, photography, writing, and research all bring me joy and help me make sense of the world.

So there they are, and here I am. Most of all, regardless of any particular thing I do, I believe in the importance of having a sense of wonder – any world where I can continue to find it is a good one. Here’s to hoping you can find it too.
