My interest in fishing led me to major in environmental science at Brown University. The interdisciplinary nature of this field (I studied chemistry, biology, physics, geology, oceanography and policy) opened my eyes to the power of making unique connections between the various sciences.
I created a magazine called Catalyst designed to connect the various scientific fields on campus, and I came to understand that the connections between disciplines could be just as strong as they are between cultures. (The magazine celebrated its 20th anniversary last year).
