Who Is Anne Helmenstine?
Azareal aka Anne Helmenstine
Hi! I'm Anne Helmenstine, known to online readers as Anne, Dr. Helmenstine, or Azareal, depending on how you know me.
I wrote this bio to support my Squidoo lenses, but I'm finding it's a handy way to share photos and updates with friends and a one-stop spot for me to find my own online content.

More about Anne Helmenstine
I'm a scientist, trained in interdisciplinary research. Biology, physics, chemistry, astronomy, programming, math... all that great stuff. I just call it 'science'. I don't consider myself specialized in any one scientific discipline.
I'm a professional writer. My main contract is with About.com writing about chemistry. It's incredibly fun, plus they pay me.
I've had other jobs. I have additional interests. I had a successful company as a jewelry designer for a few years. I'm a college professor and research scientist, on-and-off. I compose music. I spend much of my free time in the ocean.
