One must still have chaos in oneself to give birth to a dancing star.— Friedrich Nietzsche
To be a good scientist, you have to be curious, adventurous, and restless. Curious because something must drive you so strongly to demystify nature that you dedicate your life to it. Adventurous because you must try to answer questions that no one else has asked yet. Often there is no playbook for how to proceed. And restless because one answer can never be enough – it can only drive you to the next question.
I am these things. Most of my waking hours are spent writing and running experiments, but sometimes my restlessness can only be kept at bay by art or travel. I’ve had some pretty amazing experiences and created some weird things. But if an idea forms in your mind and you don’t share it, then does it really exist? My answer to that question is “no”. The world becomes a slightly better place if you put strange and beautiful things into. So, I guess that’s the purpose of this blog. I want to share my experiences and creations because doing so is better than not.
I have a huge backlog of art and travel photos. More to follow. Subscribe below to get notified when I post new updates.
