Debunking myths on genetics and DNA


"But I don't want to go among mad people," said Alice.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the cat. "We're all mad here."

~Lewis Carroll

I grew up in Tuscany, in a house on a hill that I shared with two dogs, two cats, 5 chickens, and the occasional batches of stick insects, newts and toads my dad would bring home from the lab. Today, I'm a scientist and an award-winning author and photographer. I spend my days analyzing HIV data, my evenings chasing sunsets, and my nights pretending I'm somebody else. My debut novel, CHIMERAS, is a 2014 Readers' Favorite International Book Award winner in the murder-mystery category and a B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree.

My photography has been showcased at Fuller Lodge Art Center in Los Alamos, NM, at the Viewpoint Photographic Art Center in Sacramento, CA, at the Amanda Smith Gallery in Johnson City, TX, and at the Silver Sun Gallery on Canyon Road, Santa Fe, NM. My series "Il Male di Vivere" was awarded Third Place in the prestigious 2014 International Photography Awards annual competition.
