Male, mid 30s, living in DC. Trained as a scientist, but struggled with breadth/depth issues in academia. Now works in policy, where the balance seems a better fit. Simultaneously wants to take over the world and run screaming from it, knows neither can happen. Currently seeking agency representation for my first novel, revising my second, contemplating my third. I blog about books and writing, my life and family, and other assorted subjects...but rarely about science or politics. I usually post once or twice a week and welcome all followers and commenters.
