I am an easy-going, friendly, and optimistic human being. I love to understand how the world works and I challenge others to do the same. I believe with understanding we can have a greater appreciation for the simpler things as well as the most complex things. Chemistry and Biology are my two favorite subjects and I love seeing how they are applied in nature as well as in industry. I recently graduated with a M.S. in Polymer Chemistry from the University of Oregon, because polymers are the coolest. I would be happy to share a polymer fact with you if you are interested.
