Perhaps the best way to describe myself succinctly is to list what motivates me:
- Academics and knowledge, particularly science
- Art and creativity, particularly music and imagery
- Nature, particularly alpine camping
- Movement, particularly road cycling
- Laughter, particularly cunning wit and Coen Brothers' films
- Experience, particularly extemporaneous endeavors and travel
- Meeting people, particularly those with boundless ambition and imagination
- Health, particularly a plant-based diet and moderate wine consumption
- Writing, particularly writing the word particularly
I received a PhD in neuroscience investigating cellular and molecular roles of neurodegeneration in models of ischemic stroke and multiple sclerosis; I have a small start-up company that serves as a fiduciary of private-sourced funds to biomedical research laboratories; I am a licensed mortgage broker in the state of Oregon. I also lead the local band, "dKOTA" that plays the Portland area ((website hidden)). We sound like Ryan Adams meets Radiohead meets Damien Rice.
