I am passionate about understanding and exploring the world with a rational mind. I am inspired to learn, apply, and teach science and appreciation of the world while nurturing personal development.
I'll simply share one of my "Whoa, that's amazing"/tingly ideas that once crept into my head. Each and every one of us carries with us the birth of the universe. Every atom of hydrogen in our body was created in the Big Bang birth of this universe, and has been carried through the approximately 14 billion years to reside in all the water, amino acids, etc. in our bodies and that of all living things. We all carry the initial breath of the universe. While understanding the size of the universe has the immense capacity to make us feel very small in the big picture of things, realizing that I am in large part the original material of the universe provides me with a strong feeling of connectedness to, well, everything.
Astronomy, astrophysics, planetary science.... science in general in all its amazing disciplines. I am fascinated with how everything connects, and strongly passionate about education.
