I'm interested in ecological/environmental chemistry and conservation, the physics of solar power collection devices and am deeply curious in particle physics and the exact nature of the natural laws that govern the universe (admittedly, the last one hasn't played into my professional development). I enjoy working with my hands (for example, I knit, cook, sew, chainsaw, can do some construction like dry-walling and some gardening). I've been involved in wine making, beer bottling, Lamplighter's Italian-American social club, theater productions, an orchestra, a fledgling collegiate "problem-solving club," and the American Chemical Society: Cleveland Chapter.
