I am currently planning on pursuing a major in Microbiology. I learned about OpenWetWare from DIYbio and Google. I am doing research on unusual plants like teosinte, fungi, native bees, purple-foliage maize, blue tomatoes, and pea breeding.

I am also attempting to develop a watermelon landrace for Northern Colorado climate. My first attempt at this was in summer 2011. So far it seems to be a mild success (you can go to my blog or website for more info).


  • Currently an undergrad student at Front Range Community College (FRCC), but will eventually transfer to Colorado State University (CSU). Most likely for a degree in Microbiology.

Research Interests

  1. Botany - I have a strong interest in native and unusual plant species.
  2. Fungi - I am learning more about fungi, and hope to discover more about how they can continue to be used to benefit human health.
  3. Synthetic Biology - Interested in how synthetic biology can be used to for new inventions.
  4. Biochemistry - I have a growing interest in the chemicals found in nature. Anthocyanins are the first to peak my interest. I believe that plants with high levels of Anthocyanins in their foliage may be key to successful colonization of Mars.

Other Interests

  1. Esperanto - La Internacia Lingvo.
