I’ve often joked with myself that I’m too much of an artist to be a scientist and too much of a scientist to be an artist. Over the course of my young life I’ve found myself:

– Onstage in everything from tap dancing musicals to intellectual dramas.
– Tickling the ivories for improv comedy.
– Drawing insects, plants and animals.
– Wandering the woods with a  butterfly net.
– Knee deep in sludge looking for plants.
– Testing starch samples with concentrated sulfuric acid.
– Doing plenty of other strange and eclectic things.

And finally, as I begin this blog, I find myself in Edinburgh studying Science Communication and Public Engagement, in the hopes of further avoiding picking one side or the other within the science/art debate. I hope you enjoy these misfit musings.
