Science has always been especially interesting to me. Senior year of high school, I took AP Chemistry and AP Biology, won a scholarship to a DOE camp at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, toured the superconducting supercollider, and karyotyped DNA from the HIV virus.
Then I realized if I pursued biomedical engineering like I planned, I might never see the outside of a lab again.
So I moved to Alaska and put my scientific curiosity to work learning to grow food in Alaska. During my many hours of gardening, my mind created futuristic scenarios of a world without plants. A world without food. A world where bio-engineering might be the only thing that could save humanity…
Welcome, and best of luck in the apocalypse!
