Nobody knows I’m…. “A huge geek...I love biology and am in a lot of weird niche Facebook groups like ‘Wild Green Memes for Ecological Fiends’ and ‘Entomology.’”

I've never been able to… “Build an interest in math or sports.”

I'd give anything to meet: “Ray Bradbury - he’s my favorite author.”

Favorite quote "Life is trying things to see if they work." - Ray Bradbury
