And now for something completely different...

Well this one is from another lifetime ago, long before I became a designer. I came across my name in the book Molecular Genetic Approaches in Conservation. At the end of the book the authors thanked me, as well as other scientific research assistants, for the data we accumulated for the Caribbean Conservation Corporation in Tortuguero, Costa Rica.  What an amazing job that was. We walked five or so miles a night along the beaches in four hour shifts. We tagged the huge green sea turtles as they lay their hundred or so eggs in a nest they dug. The beach was covered in glowing bioluminescence and the warm air was filled with the sweet smell of night-blooming orchids. It was magic.
