I have always been fascinated by computers and what they could do. My interest is within mathematics, telecommunication (Ph.D.), and data mining, the later is with a telecommunication company. More of my research could be found at ( That’s why I have found Foldit very interesting. All those combinations, impossible to get the correct answer intrigues me.

I don't have a science background, but, most of the stocks I trade in are in the bio or stemcell sector. The premise of this game fascinates me. ;)

No trees were killed in the creation of this message. However, many electrons were terribly inconvenienced. ;)

I have recently shifted careers to become a high school educator. I am having fun in the trenches of urban education. My first (academic) love is enzyme catalysis, and my second is protein structure. I am learning to love motivating young people. Foldit exercises another part of my brain that teaching does not.

I am unfortunately retired at 45 due to medical reasons. I am a Buddhist. I used to love to run but can't anymore. I am very excited about keeping my brain sharp by doing these puzzles

Retired technology professional finally escaped from tech giants sanity intact. Except can't seem to get shut of foldit. But hopefully contributing to advancing the art of protein folding with occasional pressure on the better folders.
