"Kings or parliaments could not give the rights essential to happiness... We claim them from a higher source -- from the King of kings, and Lord of all the earth. They are not annexed to us by parchments and seals. They are created in us by the decrees of Providence, which establish the laws of our nature. They are born with us; exist with us; and cannot be taken from us by any human power, without taking our lives." ~ John Dickinson

By day, I travel to exotic locales and repair exotic scientific instruments. By night, I play whatever electronic game has captured my interest recently, or read all those books that I was supposed to have read when I was in school.
Chemistry (B.S. 2005, Pennsylvania State University, M.S. 2008 University of Pittsburgh).
I learn things recreationally, despite not being very good at it.
