Your host is a 56 year old Biochemist, with a doctorate in Biochemistry, and a Master’s Degree in Military History. I have played acoustic guitar for over 30 years, and ran a pottery for 10, was a revolutionary during the 60’s, and now consider myself to the right of center on social and foreign policy issues, to the left on environmental issues.

I was born and raised in the Catskill Mountains of New York, inheriting, from my childhood, a passionate love of the outdoors. I have moved around a lot, and am currently in Minnesota, looking for a way to move anywhere to the Southwest, if possible (unfortunately, there are not many biochemist jobs in New Mexico). I am hoping that this blog will help in that direction.
