My Bio

I've always loved art. I spent my middle school & high school career in magnet schools for the arts. In high school I majored in printmaking & art history.

But I've also always loved science, & late in high school I realized that the market for science is a bit less saturated. In particular, I find studying physics of space (i.e. astrophysics) an immensely spiritual experience, to the extent that one can be spiritual as a secular humanist. So that's what I got my PhD in.

Art is now my release valve, instead of an additional source of pressure, though you'd be surprised how often design and color theory help me in my scientific career. My job also lets me travel quite a bit, so I also like to take artsy-fartsy photos as much as is practical and put them here for posterity.

Note: if you want to color my line art, please PM me for permission (I have never refused—ask and ye shall receive the full-size line drawing), and when you're ready to post, just be sure to include both my name and a link to my original line drawing in the description.

The photos I take usually require very little work on my part, so I don't mind them being used for stock.

Yes, I'm NerdNerdBurger on Imgur. I don't make a big deal of it.

Series Update

Not that anyone really cares, but after laying fallow for upwards of 2 years and with no real long term plan for its entire existence until now, I finally have updates to announce on my original series. 1) It has a name now: Quadrupole Moments (it's an excessively nerdy pun on but everything else I thought of was too edgelord-tier). The name comes from the fact that the threads will typically revolve around the interactions between 3 consistent species, and a 4th one that varies. The 3 consistent species will be humans, a half-finished genetically engineered species derived from humans and other Earth creatures that mostly lives on a moon around the HD 28185b, and an 8-limbed upside-down-Y-shaped species whose name is best transcribed as Gikhnur. The 4th pole may variously be 2 competing sides of one of the above races with the other 2 races caught between them, or another entity or race entirely (e.g. the engineered species' creator, or the

Hi-Lo Aster,

Read your bio,

hoped you might be able to appreciate this.

Indeed I do appreciate it. I'm agnostic about the Sun and stars being self-aware since I don't have the foggiest idea how we could test for it, but it's interesting to contemplate.
