I was born in a small town in Minnesota. I've loved history and science my entire life. I've worked in neurology and neuroscience laboratories. I've had first hand experience in marine biology as well. I love archives and libraries. I like historic buildings. I'd prefer not to own a mobile phone. But I have a twitter account.
