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.

I did finally get a new job, BTW. It's in Sweden. The only drawback is that I have to spend 2 gap months in FL

I wanted to ask, when I mouse over your name I see symbols above you characters. Is there a website I can visit to look up their meanings?

Oh, these? They're astrological symbols for the dwarf planets those characters represent. A few are made up from scratch while others are what I considered improvements on previous designs, but they're all meant to in some way reflect on the mythological figure that is each planet's namesake.
