I have a B.S. in biology from Davidson College, and after graduating I spent about 18 months coordinating the international genetically engineered machine competition. Since then I’ve led a session at a workshop on Synthetic Biology standards, helped drive the production of PoBoL, the first BioBrick Description Language, launched a minimal biological parts registry service, started a DIY-biotech Boston interest group, and been organizing a workshop for SB4.0. I’ve given a couple of other talks on the side, one at O’Reilly’s Ignite Boston 2008 (video here). I’ve accomplished most of those website efforts with my best friend and partner in crime, Jason Morrison - we blog together at bricklet.org.
I work in a splendid coworking space with a bunch of other web entreprenuers and I like my direction right now even though I don’t have a job. In 2010 I plan on going to grad school for Synthetic Biology.
