You know me: I was that kid you knew who liked to take things apart, occasionally with a hammer.  Unfortunately, I wasn't as successful at putting them together again.  For this reason, I became a scientist (PhD) instead of a physician (MD).  I'm currently working as a microbiologist at a medical center in Dallas, researching bacterial pathogenesis. I've made several attempts in the past to maintain a blog with at least a semblance of regularity, and I have high hopes that this time I'll actually succeed.
