Microbe whisperer, beer geek, lifter of things, quiet Gemini, sometimes blogger, and traveler.

I've spent over the past fifteen years living in both Italy and my native United States. It's a long story and involves a guy (like most long stories in my life). Now I'm a graduate student, chasing a long-deferred dream of becoming a scientist and science writer. If there's anything I love more than thinking about biology, it's writing about it.

Whenever I have a free moment, I enjoy writing about my experiences both at home and abroad. Words make me happy, putting them to paper makes me even happier, and sharing my experiences with the wider world helps me to feel fulfilled and connected in a sometimes chaotic and disconnected lifestyle.

My interests are primarily related to microbiology (because everybody's gotta have a passion), food and cooking (because there are few pleasures in life as great as good food!) and fitness (because you have to pay for those pleasures somehow).
