“I am kind of an amateur artist. I've always practiced some form of art because I've found it's a really great counterpoint to science. I feel like it's very synergistic. Actually, before I majored in geology, I was considering being an art major. When I was in high school, a class I took over and over again — because I just loved it and it was a great way to get out of the high school mentality — was metalsmithing or jewelry arts. So I have a little studio in my garage and I still do that.”
