Introduction Hi, my name is Mike. I like to travel, hike, and swim. I enjoy science topics, especially those concerning the environment. I also like to keep updated on disease organisms - which were the focus of my major. I studied Biology at SFSU with an emphasis in Clinical Science, Parasitology and Waste Water Treatment Microbiology. I also enjoy studying Ecology, Geology, Cosmology and Marine Biology. I love to travel! My favorite places are the Picos De Europa in Asturias Spain and the region in southern France around St. Jean Cap Ferrat and Eze Sur Mer. I have traveled all over Western and Eastern Europe as well as the Caribbean, South Pacific and New Zealand. In junior high and high school I attended summer school at Hawai'i Prep where I was exposed to the wonders of the ocean and Volcanology. All of my experiences have expanded and enriched my passion for the biological and geochemical cycles that govern our lives. I am further grateful for my naturalist grandparents and parents who, as teachers, exposed me to Geology and science from an early age.
Interests Yoga, Hiking, Art, Swimming, Travel, Oceans.
Favorite Movies Sci-Fi movies mostly, nature documentary.

Governments spend billions to send probes into space to study the solar system. It's exciting and the discoveries are amazing. A question to consider: Should we continue this or use those funds to explore and solve the complex problems on our own planet - the only known hospitable place for life in the Universe?
