Meandering over some hills - come along...
Currently chasing an idea about stem cells and cancer.  I have an interest in molecular/cell biology, infectious diseases, diseases, the genetic basis of disease.

I've been a vegan for over 20 years.  if I can live first and foremost on plants, then that's what I'll do.

I am a software developer and also troubleshoot IT problems for a living.
