Once upon a time, I was going to be a scientist. These days, I try to keep up with the field – it’s been occasionally useful during 2020’s Coronavirus pandemic.

I’m also a history buff, particularly around the Balkans, where I was born. I’ve lived in the US since 1997, entirely in New England. Currently residing in the Boston MSA.
