I've just recently moved back to Eugene after a 5 year stint in Seattle working in oil spill research for NOAA.
I'm a down-to-earth, easy-going, silly, and sarcastic guy. I greatly prefer conversations under the stars to in ones in bars, except when there there is quality live music worth dancing to (funk is my kryptonite). On any given day there is little I appreciate more than meaningful connection through conversation.
In addition to my scientific passions, I'm also an avid traveler (local and international) as well as a funky bassist (my bass is actually a ukulele).
