I am gay and I am a chemist.//

I am currently a process chemist at Bristol-Myers Squibb. Inorganic/Organometallic chemist by training and learning. I absolutely LOVE molecular orbital theory and am colorblind (been a tough life constantly asking people what color my reactions/complexes are :P). Chemistry has taken me from Miami to Chicago to North Carolina to New Jersey, its been a wild ride and I don’t want it to ever stop! :D. I speak 4 languages and am trying for a 5th (Turkish, super hard, but I’m trying so I can talk to my partner’s parents more). And in my spare time, I dance, hip-hop mostly, but I love all different types!
