We’re a bunch of friends with a knack for doing fun, weird science.
We decided to make a career of it.
This likely comes as no surprise, but, I love science.
That feeling when something you see changes the way you see forever. I can say without exaggeration that it’s a huge rush for me. I’ve found as many ways to play with science as I can. I’ve written for newspapers, pursued unusual degrees, done television outreach, radio interviews, worked in science museums. All of it hoping to re-experience, over and over, that rush. I want everyone to feel this way. I think it can change the world.
