"I don't have an MFA and, in fact, majored in Molecular Biology in college. After graduation I found poetry largely by accident at the public library. What a wonderful time to be alive! If you can read you can teach yourself anything — and I have found that understanding is what I really love to do, on both a practical and emotional level. What drew me to science, and now writing poetry, is the methodical act of discovery — the way you are always seeking clarity — proving something new, or even just proving something, widely believed, to yourself."
