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.
I am a bioanthropologist who studies the interactions of dogs, people, and the environment.

“Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.”
