When a student at Cal Poly Pomona University I received the Hamilton Watch Award for outstanding performance in BOTH the arts and the sciences. I was just starting serious labwork in biological research but already had a thriving resume in college drama and campus politics. SO, while I have spent my most of my life in science, my earlier life in high school and college felt the joy of contributing to the arts and humanities. The life of the scientist leaves very little time for such pursuits, but I hope that my later life in retirement will allow further contributions. I hope the reader will forgive me but this section is included more for rounding out the view of one’s lifework and a place to collect memories of past and ongoing engagement in the beauty and potential of simply being human.
