Who Is This Human?
A train enters the station at 4:32pm.
Einstein said, "the greatest scientists are artists as well." I won't profess to greatness at either endeavor, but I do believe in the practice of both, and so that is what I do. Some days I write; some days I stare at dogs; and, some days I write about staring at dogs. All days I try to find stories that need to be told -- be their authors animal, plant, or other. My goal in the practice of both the arts and the sciences is to share those stories in as many ways as possible.
Doctoral student at work: I am a bioanthropologist who studies the brains and behavior of people and dogs.
“Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.”
