I'm interested in many topics but you'll mainly see me writing about health, science and public policy. Everyone needs a niche.
I enjoy travel and am profoundly thankful for the friends I have made in Belize, Sweden, Taiwan, Hungary and elsewhere and all of their teachable moments. I also can't do without photography, books and hiking. I hope someday to combine all of my likes and produce a readable and entertaining memoir that shows the interconnectedness of all.
It is my firm belief that independent journalists and citizen journalists are doing the jobs that traditional media used to do: informing and enlightening, presenting opposing views on an issue, keeping politicians honest, and shining a light on injustice and malfeasance.
