I live in Pittsburgh, PA, went to school at Pitt, have a B.S. in biotechnology and a masters in Human Genetics (focusing in Longevity, Genetic
Diseases, Bioinformatics and Computational Genomics). I would like to get a doctorate in immunology or virology, but I am still looking for a good
program. I would love to study abroad. Some of the stuff they get away with in China, India, Japan and Korea makes me long to work in a laboratory
I took some time off from school to work, held a good job at Pitt for about three years doing vaccine research, but the market for molecular biology
technicians is really down right now in this area, and I presently don't have the money to relocate for better work.
I'm interested in a lot of topics on this site, but I'm kind of floating about right now. I was really into G+ for awhile, but that community seems
to be fading out, and imgur just has no substance, although I do enjoy checking in on it a few times a day. I'm really looking for some place I can
have more cerebral discussions, and this seems like it might be that kind of place.
I'm a social libertarian, but I'm an economic mutualist. I'm spiritual, but I follow the Rudyard Kipling school of travelling alone. I think if any
spiritual institution on this planet had any real answers, the communities that follow them wouldn't be in such dire situations.
Anyway. I enjoy this era of human history, the internet, some tech, science, the recession of oppressive religions and governments. I believe that
humanity is on a crescendo right now, and I can't wait to witness the peak.
