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.

First fully-remembered dream in a while...

Just a writing exercise... WARNING: ending is NSFW It starts, as many dreams do, in a school. It's also apparently a nursing home because I remember guiding my late Grandmommy into an unnervingly spartan white windowless bedroom on the interior wall of a U-shaped corridor elsewhere lined with lockers. It's like an over-sized broom closet. After putting Grandmommy to bed, I take the black, white, and bubblegum-pink stairwell to the much more inviting library/art display room. Everything is stained shades of camel and tan, flimsy oaken shelves full of objets d'art form a network of cozy cubicles, and the biggest shelf behind me is full of clear jelly cups with stems of flowers jutting out. It's there I meet the AAS non-academic career counselor, who here takes the role of spiritual counselor and herbal-remedy-peddler that I find much less impressive than in real life. She and I debate the merits of her practice and her projected fortunes for me, but eventually she issues a challenge to
Partial lockdown continues. Lacking mental energy to draw, I've resorted to flower photography.
