I‘ve always had a burning curiosity about the world, and a passion for expressing myself uniquely through creative mediums. Music, film, science, architecture, even dead languages and robotics were among the many topics that interested me as kid.
Once when I was young, my family found me scrawling strange glyphs on the walls of our house with crayon. According to their accounts, they thought I’d been possessed, but in a turn for the interesting they discovered I was writing short sentences in ancient Egyptian and Nordic that I had learned from a titanic Merriam-Webster dictionary my Dad kept in his office.
And since it was the late 80’s, toys were arguably less safe. So, when my parents bought me a “toy” chemistry set it was sheer luck that I somehow survived childhood, or that anyone else survived my childhood for that matter!
