I am gay and I am a postdoctoral associate. //

Human being, Mother of Dragons (just kidding, three chihuahuas named Penny, Dobby, and Papa), fighter, and lyme disease advocate. Persistent and obsessed, DNA repair and genome-maintenance meddler. Recombinant-protein-obsessed weirdo (I’m serious, it’s kind of like Pokemon: Gotta Catch’em All!), painter, asker of questions, inspired by the Dahli Lama, death metal/punk appreciator. Just told my mom I’m dating a woman at 31. Better late than never! Did I do this right? I don’t even care because lists are easy. Challenge the system! Be the change! CARE! SPEAK UP! And most importantly: YOU CAN!
