I am a 26 year old man and I grew up in rural Ontario, Canada. As I was growing up my Dad always had dusty old books on his shelf such as “Cosmos” by Carl Sagan and “A Brief History of Time” by Stephen Hawking. Since I was a typical nerdy young boy I always had my nose in these books (when I wasn’t playing video games or watching “Star Trek”, of course).
As I got older, my interest in science never went away (nor my interest in “Star Trek”, unfortunately for my love life in high school). I ended up leaving my small hometown to study Physics at the University of Western Ontario. I graduated with a Masters degree in Physics and got a job in the Technology sector in Alberta.
I’ve always enjoyed reading and writing, and spend a lot of my time reading science news stories and papers. So writing a science blog was almost inevitable. But don’t worry, I still find time to squeeze in the odd episode of “Star Trek”.
